The "Link-It" is a design I created in order to store little objects, particularly Mars dust, or tiny miscellaneous rocks that float about in space. The lid and container portion of the Link-It is linked together with a skinny chain, hence the name, "Link-It." The lid has a protruding section in order for it to secure the container in a fixed manner. The whole container is then attached to a crane-like compressible set of hinges that is connected to a circle. This circle can be used to insert a magnifying glass so that it can conveniently magnify anything held inside the container. In space, multiple copies may enable the astronauts to stay more organized with their various space samples and avoid having to look for a pair of magnifying lens every time they need to examine a sample.
