NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The 2018 edition of NASA’s annual Spinoff publication, released Tuesday, features 49 technologies the agency helped create that are used in almost every facet of modern life.

These include innovations that help find disaster survivors trapped under rubble, purify air and surfaces to stop the spread of germs, and test new materials for everything from airplanes to athletic shoes.

Here, Lewis, right, shows local firefighters how to operate the system. (R4 Inc.)
