Fire Resistant Materials In atmospheres containing a high percentage of oxygen under pressure_such as a manned spacecraftmfire hazard is greater than normalAfter a Apollo fire, NASA intensified its fire safety research and sought new fire retarding materials for greater protection of astronauts in an oxygen rich environment.

Agency advanced remote health monitoring, high performance insulation and freeze dryingAlthough NASA develops technology to push the envelope of aeronautics or explore the distant reaches of the Moon, the Sun, Mars, and beyond, much of that technology is shared with companies who ultimately use it to improve daily life for the public in many ways, from making commercial air travel safer to
