    Most of the worlds issues is with religion, "My God is better than your God bullshit"

    Some of the worlds best known Atheists

    And they have made some astounding contributions and have changed the way we understand the universe and everything around us

    Niels Bohr
    Francis Crick
    Richard Dawkins
    Paul Dirac
    Stephen Hawking
    Peter Higgs

    To name but a few

    Do you remember that Atheist suicide bomber that blew himself up amongst the general public because of his beliefs?

    Nope? Neither do I......

    And no, I'm not an Atheist, I'm Agnostic ("agnosticism is the view that human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist.").

    Anyway, back to the topic... kind of. Space exploration can push technology to it's limits, and as such, we benefit from it. Here's some examples:


    1. CAT scanner: this cancer-detecting technology was first used to find imperfections in space components.


    2. Computer microchip: modern microchips descend from integrated circuits used in the Apollo Guidance Computer.


    3. Cordless tools: power drills and vacuum cleaners use technology designed to drill for moon samples.


    4. Ear thermometer: a camera-like lens that detects infrared energy we feel as heat was originally used to monitor the birth of stars.


    5. Freeze-dried food: this reduces food weight and increases shelf life without sacrificing nutritional value.

    6. Insulation: home insulation uses reflective material that protects spacecraft from radiation.

    7. Invisible braces: teeth-straightening is less embarrassing thanks to transparent ceramic brace brackets made from spacecraft materials.

    8. Joystick: this computer gaming device was first used on the Apollo Lunar Rover.

    9. Memory foam: created for aircraft seats to soften landing, this foam, which returns to its original shape, is found in mattresses and shock absorbing helmets.

    10. Satellite television: technology used to fix errors in spacecraft signals helps reduce scrambled pictures and sound in satellite television signals.

    11. Scratch resistant lenses: astronaut helmet visor coating makes our spectacles ten times more scratch resistant.

    12. Shoe insoles: athletic shoe companies adapted space boot designs to lessen impact by adding spring and ventilation.

    13. Smoke detector: NASA invented the first adjustable smoke detector with sensitivity levels to prevent false alarms.

    14. Swimsuit: NASA used the same principles that reduce drag in space to help create the world’s fastest swimsuit for Speedo, rejected by some professionals for giving an unfair advantage.

    15. Water filter: domestic versions borrow a technique NASA pioneered to kill bacteria in water taken into space.
