Curious how a device designed to produce fuel and oxygen on Mars transformed into a source of clean energy right here on Earth? The 2010 edition of NASA's annual Spinoff publication is available, highlights innovations and notable examples of NASA technology improving everyday life on our home planet.

Spinoff provides an in-depth look at how the agency's initiatives in aeronautics and space exploration have resulted in beneficial commercial technologies in the fields of health and medicine, transportation, public safety, consumer goods, environmental protection, computer technology, and industrial productivity. These advancements enhance our quality of life while contributing to the nation's economy through the creation of jobs and the support of businesses, large and small. They also help to inspire younger generations to explore education and careers in science, technology, math, and engineering.

Spinoff 2010 contains dozens of examples highlighting how space technology yields innovations with Earthly benefits, including:              
                          

  • Algorithms developed by a NASA researcher that are enabling technology for medical diagnosis and prediction of brain blood flow-related conditions such as stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury
  • NASA-proven, drag-reducing wing modifications that have already saved commercial airlines more than 2 billion gallons in jet fuel
  • Inflatable antennas -- developed with NASA funding -- that support essential communication needs in remote areas during military operations, as well as in disaster zones
  • Image sensors, invented by a NASA team, that are now featured in one out of every three cell phone cameras
  • A groundwater remediation compound, created by NASA to treat contaminated launch facilities, now being used to clean up polluted areas around the world

Spinoff also profiles NASA's research and development activities, education efforts and partnership successes for the year. This edition celebrates the 10th anniversary of continuous habitation onboard the International Space Station, revealing the many ways that technologies developed for the space station have resulted in public benefits on Earth.
