3 Survival Skills Learned from NASA
1. Always have at least one backup
As you probably would imagine sending things into space is pretty expensive. Because of this, space is always at a premium. Even with this in mind, every system NASA uses and every tool they employ have at least 2 backups in one form or another.
NASA knows that when it rains it pours, so they back every system up a few times just in case. By having double or triple redundancy astronauts can rest assured that nearly any failure can be righted by the next backup in line. Use this same idea when prepping and keep backups of your most important items and plans. Don’t worry about making each redundancy the same quality, as a bike can be a redundancy for a car, and a good pair of walking shoes can replace a bike.
