What's Happening on Paracord Planet

Posted by Luke Quanbeck on Oct 11th 2018

What's Happening Title

Did you know that paracord has not only been taken into space, but has been used to repair spacecraft?

"Hubble Servicing Mission 2" in 1997 involved using a couple of unconventional fixes. Repair materials included: teflon insulation with velcro, paracord, copper wire, and plastic ties. Good thing those astronauts wore their survival bracelet on the outside of their spacesuit… okay, maybe that's not how it happened.

We've got some out-of-this-world updates to share with you this fall!

It's been a great summer, and many of you are already starting to plan your winter projects. Take a look at all that's in store for the next couple of months.
