I thought I would share a little thing that came in my inbox this morning from NASA News involving MacGyverism on the Moon. Go the duct tape!

Going to the Moon? Don't forget your duct tape. Thirty-six years ago when Apollo 17 astronauts found themselves a quarter million miles from home with a damaged moonbuggy, a roll of "good old fashioned American gray tape" saved the day.

And don't forget Apollo 13 -- there's a fine example of real-life MacGyvering in Space.
