Everyone knows about the space program disasters, but nowhere do you see a mention of the space missions rescued by a prudent use of knitted outerwear. There were the landing pads Neil Armstrong worked up on straight needles for the Apollo mission, then of course the heat-resistant shields NASA patched together with chunky yarn for the shuttle missions, then finally, the miracle of the Mir space station. Think of it, the first space station knitted entirely from recycled fiber. A success for both toessels and the environment!
