NASA technology makes deep space travel happen, but it also improves long distance travel here on Earth.

Actor, creator, producer and writer Seth Green talks about how there is more space in your life than you might think in a new video released on the agency's website, NASA TV and YouTube channel.

Two of the technologies highlighted – winglets and improved design for – are featured in the agency's Spinoff 2013 book.

"NASA technologies improve our everyday lives, including providing us with safer, cleaner modes of transportation, supporting millions of passengers and packages traveling by air and ground everyday with efficiencies, comfort and safety," said Daniel Lockney, NASA's Technology Transfer Program executive. "The program works to bring the cutting-edge technologies developed for NASA missions down to Earth."
