Astro Biz: Crazy Aaron’s Cosmic Thinking Putty

Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Crazy Aaron’s Cosmic Thinking Putty. We’ve had a tin of Crazy Aaron’s product on our desk for around 20 years! It’s nice to know of products with staying power. We never, however, really thought of it as an Astro Biz until we spotted some of what we take to be a new line of cosmic colors of it in a small shop in San Francisco last weekend. Available versions of the putty include Milky Way, Solar Wind, Star Dust, and North Star.

Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty really works. You can squeeze it, stretch it, mold it while you ponder those knotty problems. This can also be considered a procrastination technique, and sometimes that’s necessary, too.
