    Post Apollo space program spawned technologies, products still in use

    Apollo space program spawned technologies, products still in use.

    It's true that NASA has been erroneously credited with inventing a handful of technologies and products -- Tang, Velcro and computer chips, to name a few -- but America's space agency really is responsible for a variety of innovations that are still in use.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    The return of investment was 26:1.

    Not bad for a government program.

    Economists. Not sure who hired them. It would have been a major undertaking to track all of the data.
