There’s a famous moment towards the end of the story of Apollo 13 in which the astronauts will die if mission control engineers don't improvise and create a makeshift carbon dioxide filter immediately.
One engineer dumps a box of random space parts onto the table — hoses, bags, ducktape, suits, canisters — and the team goes to work. “Let’s get it organized,” says one engineer. “OK let’s build a filter,” says another. “Better put a pot of coffee on.”
