Fabulous photo. Hardly believe it's real - it's so... literal!

Teflon was not created as a by-product of the space race. Here's the straight dope.
Quote:
PTFE is sometimes said to be a spin-off from the U.S. space program with more down-to-earth applications; this is an urban legend, as TeflonŽ cooking pans were commonplace before Yuri Gagarin's flight in 1961. PTFE was discovered serendipitously by Roy Plunkett of DuPont in 1938, while attempting to make a new CFC refrigerant, when the perfluorethylene polymerized in its storage container. DuPont patented it in 1941, and registered the TeflonŽ trademark in 1944.

Is the digram to scale? That's a very big spaceship.

Yes, and the spelling is correct also.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong, I was right.
