Don't pretend you haven't wondered...

What does NASA do for me?  After all, Mamta blogs all day and gets ME...the taxpayer.  (If you are my boss reading this, first off, why are you reading my blog?  And second, of course, I ONLY blog off the clock...)

You've heard it before and without doubt have asked that one friend who has a friend who knows someone who works for NASA:  "I always hear that NASA gives us technology, but what?".

Fair enough.  I am the first to say it-NASA does a poor job of communicating the advances to the general public.  And, you should be the first to know.  Thank-you-very-much, taxpayers.

  1. Awesome link, Mamta! I didn't realize some of the spin-offs listed were linked back to a NASA innovation. The annual "Spinoff" publication ( should be more publicly available.

  2. Thanks Irene! I love that read the blog. It's so silly:)-the blog that is. Yes, I agree. I need to bookmark that link you provided!
