Title: The Benefits of Space Exploration


1
The Benefits of Space Exploration
By Austin Brewer
2
  • The benefits of space exploration affect the
    lives of every American.
  • There have been many advances in the medical
    field.

3
  • Technology was used to create compact laboratory
    equipment for hospitals and ambulances.

4
  • Smaller devises were made to quickly analyze
    blood and other tests.
  • The smaller devises made the tests available for
    ambulances.

5
  • Advances in the Space Shuttle fuel pump led to
    the development of the heart pump.
  • It is two inches long, one inch in diameter, and
    weighs less than four ounces.

6
  • Kidney dialysis machines were developed as a
    result of a NASA-developed chemical process.

7
Insulin pumps were bases on technology used on
the Mars Viking spacecraft.
8
  • Infrared sensors were developed to measure the
    temperature of distant stars and planets.
  • This led to the development of the hand-held
    thermometer.
  • When it is placed inside the ear canal, the
    thermometer provides an accurate reading in 2
    seconds or less.

9
  • Lighter artificial limbs are made from foam
    insulation used to protect the fuel tank.
  • This makes the artificial limb almost
    indestructible.

10
  • Computer technology in space has led to
    improvements in imaging -- MRI, CATScans, and
    ultrasound.
  • This has helped Doctors to better treat their
    patients.

11
  • NASA needed something to protect satellites from
    getting nicked by space debris.
  • This led to scratch-resistant lenses for
    eyeglasses and radiation blocking for sun
    glasses.

12
  • Automatic blood pressure cuffs were developed to
    help monitor blood pressure for the astronauts.
  • Today you can find the device just about anywhere
    for an instant check of your blood pressure.

13
  • Nitinol is used to make wearing dental braces
    just a little easier.
  • Nitinol is a medical alloy that has the ability
    to spring back into shape.

14
  • Space based technology will continue to enrich a
    wide range of medical improvements over the
    years.
  • It can continue to improve our quality of life by
    showing us new ways to treat our sick and injured.
