04SCRATCH – RESISTANT LENSES

Astronauts´ visors used a diamond like carbon coating to prevent scratches. Now used to give glasses 10 times the conventional scratch resistance.

03ADJUSTABLE SMOKE DETECTOR

These alarm have various sensitivity levels to prevent false alarms. They were developed for use on the Skylab space station.

02WATER FILTER

Domestic water filter system is derived from those used on the Apollo spacecraft. These used filters that sanitized water via silver ionization.

01CORDLESS TOOLS

In order to take samples, the moon landings required drills. Cordless, battery-powered tools were born.
