The Answer Is In the Stars

NASA engineers have been telling us for years that space travel research has applications here on earth.  Easy to recognize Tang – that doubtful substitute for orange juice, but now the rescue of the Chilean miners has redeemed all those flights into the unknown.

Not only the space travel capsule which went down instead of up, but also NASA’s help with a “rescue diet,”  an exercise regimen, and best of all – giving the miners night and day – a way to control circadian rhythms that we all know can wreak havoc (jet lag?)

Congratulations to NASA – great PR – and most of the miners came out ready to play soccer.
