If you have a soft spot for dogs, then we are glad to inform you that your favourite pet animal made this discovery. Well, not entirely, but it did play an important role in helping the owner, George de Mestral, come up with a product that transformed not just NASA but also the lives of school children.

So when the Swiss engineer went for the hunting trip, he realised that the burrs kept sticking to the fur of his dog and his own socks. After reaching the lab, he took the samples from the fur and examined the “hooks” that led to this problem. He prepared various prototypes using different materials until he reached Nylon. The product would not have gained popularity if two decades later, NASA didn't use it in their spacesuits.

So always keep your mind open while researching because you might stumble upon the next best thing in the world.
