Yesterday was a blast!
Around 1 p.m. ET yesterday I tuned in to the NASA/SpaceX live stream to witness history.
Prior to the scheduled launch they featured interviews with rocket scientists, engineers and of course astronauts galore.
All had something interesting to say about the implications of the launch and what it would mean going forward.
About an hour before the launch, I popped some popcorn, got myself comfortable…
And then, 15 minutes before blast off, it was canceled due to the weather.
“Disappointing” is the only thing I can really say. The good news is the backup launch date is going to happen this Saturday at 3:22 pm. Be sure to tune in!
But while a space launch is cool, many of you wrote in and asked why it was important to you.
Today, I’m going to share the importance of the work done in space and share a profit opportunity you don’t want to miss.
Let’s jump right in.
The ISS and Its Importance to You
One thing we don’t hear about often enough is the research scientists perform on the International Space Station, or ISS.
It’s easy to think that it’s just a bunch of astronauts chilling in space improving the station itself.
But that’s just a small portion of what goes on up there.
Because of the weird antigravity conditions of the space station, it allows experiments to be performed that couldn’t be accomplished back on Earth.
These include but are not limited to the effects of space on the human body, biology development, tech development and of course space tech.
What does it mean for you?
Well, if we ever want to colonize Mars, we’ll need to understand how muscles feel in weightlessness, how to development space-protectant materials…
And most importantly how to feed ourselves in a hostile environment.
Furthermore, space tech has produced a whole slew of products that you might not realize.
Some of the inventions created for space travel we use today in our everyday lives without batting an eye.
Examples are the rubber on athletic shoes, baby formula and camera phones.
But also essential lifesaving devices like insulin pumps, firefighting equipment and water filtration.
The list is extensive.
And having SpaceX fly astronauts from home soil makes it faster to get experiments from the ISS back to research labs in America for faster and cheaper development.
It’s a win-win situation for both parties involved.
