The tool I have created is a portable, convenient, multi-tool. It includes a Phillips-Head screw tip, a Flat-Head screw tip, a pentagon shaped screw tip, and a wrench. This tool is convenient to carry around when building or fixing anything on the ISS because astronauts may need different screw types, or would need a wrench to remove a stubborn screw. It is convenient because, according to www.NASA.Gov, “It [The ISS] is big enough to cover a football field including the end zones.” This means it would be easier to carry around this tiny multi-tool, rather than the entire tool box. Astronauts could keep them in their pockets in case of any emergent conditions. Also, because they are cheaply made, hundreds could be made on the space station, and stop the astronauts from bringing thousands of tools on board. According to “5: The number of unmanned spacecraft used to haul supplies to the space station.” In conclusion, the multitool is convenient to have on the ISS.
