Notable quotes, excerpts, and profound lines.
It was quite literally a lifesaver for the astronauts aboard the Apollo 13 spacecraft. Without it they would have been a asphyxiated long before they reached home. Without duct tape there's no way they could have rigged up a carbon dioxide filter to filter the air they were breathing after that onboard explosion took out two of their main oxygen tanks. I've always thought a great advertising slogan would be "Duct Tape. Don't leave Earth without it."
