When astronauts are relying on you then surely you will want some as well!

Duct tape is a versatile material that can be used for many different tasks. One of the most popular ways to use it is on clothing repairs, but there are plenty more uses too! You can wrap up your lighter with duct tape so you don’t lose it when camping or go hunting in bear country and carry some around just incase.
