Cooking Space

Just discovered that:

The Mercury spacecraft made the first successful American-manned flight equipped with heat-resistant windows manufactured by Corning.

Corning would go on to create the window glass for every manned American spacecraft – from Gemini and Apollo flights to the Space Shuttle – and would continue to produce glass for numerous applications within the space industry.

I’m so excited, I’m going to go make a “caNASArole”!

You’re welcome.
