NASA Spinoff 2011 Unveils Benefits of NASA Technologies on Earth


NASA’s Spinoff 2011 publication, now available online, reveals how the space agency’s ingenuity and partnerships have saved thousands of lives, generated billions of dollars, and created thousands of American jobs.

The latest edition of Spinoff records 44 journeys of NASA’s most innovative technologies. It chronicles their origins in NASA missions and programs and their transfer to the public in the form of practical commercial products and benefits to society.

“This year’s Spinoff demonstrates once again how through productive and innovative partnerships, NASA’s aerospace research brings real returns to the American people in the form of tangible products, services and new jobs,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said. “For 35 years, Spinoff has been the definitive resource for those who want to learn how space exploration benefits life on Earth.”
