NASA Spinoffs Lauded by Lockhart
Actress June Lockhart hosts this public service announcement about how NASA’s outstanding accomplishments in space are used to improve life on Earth. Lockhart played Dr. Maureen Robinson in the TV series, “Lost in Space.” Similar videos are hosted by William Shatner and Wil Wheaton of “Star Trek” who, like Lockhart, portrayed space explorers on TV and in film. NASA Spinoffs are examples of how science fiction has become science fact, resulting in new commercial products and services that are tangible returns on investments in space technology.
