How to Build Space Station-Saving Cuff Links

In 1970, the solution involved duct tape, a flight manual's cover, a plastic bag and a sock.

Three years later, it was a nylon and mylar umbrella that was assembled with a sewing machine. In 1985, although unsuccessful, the answer was two makeshift flyswatters.

And on Saturday, should NASA proceed as planned, the success of its current mission will rely on six cuff links.

But it's not like the 10 astronauts in space can rent the fasteners from the local tuxedo shop. To save the space station on which they all currently inhabit, they needed to assemble their repair tools from the spare parts launched for just such an occasion.
