Congressman Tip O’Neil and conservative commentator William F. Buckley, Jr., two leaders whose political views were diametrically opposed, agree that NASA space research has led to some remarkable advances, including safer laser surgery and water filtration methods. The NASA-derived laser angioplasty method allows non-surgical artery cleansing. The water filtration technique, based on research into sustained life support for long-duration space flight, uses common plants to clean both water and air.
