Wow, and I thought my home improvement schemes were improvised. Check out this bit of space shuttle in-flight repair work:
Mission managers also announced that they had decided how to repair a pulled-up bit of the shuttle’s heat shield. On Friday, astronaut John D. Olivas is to pat down the insulating blanket and use surgical staples from the station’s medical kit to bind it.
Now all they need is a little bubble gum to stick on there, and that puppy's good for another million miles!
