    While at Kennedy Space Center gift shop I found what's called a Space Brand Blanket. It's suppose to be a "genuine NASA spin-off product directly related to the external insulation products used on all space missions". I thought it might be cool to attach it to the exterior of u-dons LEM...(when I build it)

    If you guys are interested there are links at MPI Outdoor Products
    where it can be purchased.

    Great idea George. I found somewhere that they said that the space blanket has helped with many things and is making a comeback. I believe I found it on the NASA website while doing some school work. They said that the space blanket back then was used for the LEM, the shiled for Skylab (very interesting) and now adays they use it formarathon to keep runners warm and they can use them for outdoor public activities. NASA is turely amazing.
