15 Amazing things you didn't know about NASA

Looking at one of the most interesting organizations in the world NASA space travel is terrifying to some and a lifelong dream to others but it certainly fascinating.



NASA-National Aeronautics and Space Administration, was founded in 1958 in association with the US government mainly to try and beat The Soviet Union into space there have been many manned and unmanned NASA programs since the 1950ssome are resounding success, and some famous for their disaster because Alex comm is dedicated to becoming the world's best resource for luxury lovers and people with a thirst for knowledge.


Here are 15 amazing things you didn't know about NASA 

1.NASA shows its recruits Armageddon as a part of their training they don't show it as a positive example they show it as a test recruits are asked to identify as many scientific and logistical inaccuracies in the film as possible apparently there are quite a few

2.NASA worked with speedo in2008 to create a swimsuit with as little drag as possible NASA and speedo got together on this project and made a swimsuit so organ ohmic it's actually been banned in many swimming competitions it's considered too unfair advantage which is testimony to how great the engineering must be.

3. NASA's goal is to send a manned mission to orbit Mars by 2030 many of us have wondered what it would be like to live on Mars and how close we actually are to it turns out we're a good 15years away from being able to orbit the planet never mind land on it and start building houses with that said we have our money on Elon Musk to get us there sooner.

4. The office of planetary protection was founded to protect Earth in case we come into contact with other life-forms if sci-fi films are anything to go by aliens are likely to be hostile if they suddenly arrive or if we start pestering them in order to protect our planet NASA actually founded a specific department to quote ensure that we are taking prudent precautions to protect Earth'sbiosphere.

5.The inventor of the Super Soaker was a NASA scientist by day as well as creating the world's greatest water pistol he helped to develop the stealth bomber for the US Air Force and worked on the Galileo mission to Jupiter we're not sure the Super Soaker features much NASA technology but plenty of NASAinnovation.



6. It's not true that NASA spent a fortune developing a pen that writes in space the old rumor goes that Sovietastronauts a wise Lee used pencils while NASA messed about developing a space pen this isn't true in actual fact both American and Soviet astronauts used specially developed zero-gravity pens in space a quick fun fact we found during our research in the early 2000s NASA engineers had to resort to buying old parts on eBay so they could make new equipment when they needed a certain microchip they had to buy lots of out-of-date medical equipment just to scavenge it 

7. We actually use lots of NASA inventions every single day NASA invented the memory foam mattress cordless vacuums water filters and scratch-resistant lenses for our glassesNASA scientists can also take credit for some hugely important medical discoveries including cochlear implants and cat scans

8. The Apollo 11 astronauts couldn't get any life insurance no insurer would cover them and NASAwouldn't die there the Apollo 11 crew signed NASApostcards before they set off on their mission the hope was that if they returned the postcards would be worth a fortune thankfully they were.

 9.Threemen from Yemen tried to sue NASA because they believe Mars is theirs in 1997 the three men claimed that they had inherited the planet three thousand years ago from an ancestor their case was based on a belief that there was an ancient civilization there but it didn't in front of a judge

10. Neil Armstrong's astronaut application was a week late the man who would one day take one giant leap for mankind nearly didn't because his application form was late thankfully his friend who already worked for NASA slipped his form into the pile anyway 

11. NASA will text you every time theInternational Space Station flies over the biggest object in orbit the first launched in 1998 and has continued to be an important observatory and research facility every time it passes over your coordinates while it's in orbit you can request a text notification you can sign up at a spot the station nasa.gov

12. NASA has to power down its satellites when they pass over a certain part of Brazil the South Atlantic Anomaly is a bit of a mystery and means that in this particular area Earth'smagnetic field is particularly weak

13. There's a group of scientists working in Hawaii but pretending they're Mars this team of six workers in a dome on the slope of a volcano replicating the studies that they want to conduct on Mars and testing how possible it is they wear spacesuits outside and test the psychological factors of the mission as well as the logistics.





14. Signal sent from Jupiter to earth is a billion times weaker than your phone's signal NASA's Juno mission sees one of their satellites orbit Jupiter and when it sends messages back to Mission Control they are less than a high quality one of the program advisors has likened the precision needed to catch Juno signal to hitting a hole-in-one from California to DC number.

15. NASA has some explaining to do there have been at numerous cases where NASAadmitted to being faced with alien-like activity here are some of them in 1991NASA discovered a small body near Earth that is now listed in their astrophysics data system as a possible alien probe in2006 NASA scientists discovered a strange noise in deep space that was several times louder than anything they would expect to this day they do not know what it was and it has been dubbed the space roar in the same year NASA admitted to having accidentally recorded over the original tapes of the moon land.


We're curious to see what you guys think. Who would you bet to get us to Mars government back programs or private ventures let us know in the comments.
