The Villages - July 2019 - 6

During lunar exploration, NASA scientists
wanted to give astronauts an easier method to drill
for rock and soil samples. Any drilling device would need
to be small, lightweight and have its own power source without
sacrificing efficiency.
NASA handed the job over to the Black & Decker Manufacturing Company, which created a lightweight handheld drill that was
battery-powered and sturdy enough for lunar work.
Black & Decker used a specialized computer program to design
and refine the drill, and that program helped them design dozens
of consumer devices for sale to the public - the most well-known is
the Dustbuster handheld vacuum cleaner. Since the Dustbuster did
not require a cord, it was much more convenient for cleaning up
small messes compared to the larger vacuums of the time, and you
can still find the handheld device
in stores today.

JULY 2019

FOIL
BLANKETS

Space is a pretty unforgiving
place for humans. There is no air to
breathe and no atmosphere to protect us from meteorites and the sun's
harmful UV rays.
The Apollo lunar lander needed extra insulation and protection
from the harsh lunar environment,
so NASA worked with the National
Metallizing Division of Standard
Packaging Corporation to develop
a special metallic reflective material
that can deflect - or absorb, if needed - infrared rays, one of the main
ways thermal energy is transferred
in the vacuum of space.
The extremely lightweight and reflective material featured prominently on the lunar landers, and NASA
also used it on Skylab, the Hubble
Space Telescope and other spacecraft, satellites and equipment.
The material is now common in
emergency kits as blankets and the
blankets are useful tools for marathon runners who need a quick, efficient way to maintain body temperature after a run.
