Ex-NASA scientist calls Goop's 'healing stickers' a load of BS

Now, the company behind the stickers has apologized, claiming the inaccurate affirmation was just a big ol' misunderstanding.

The actress, singer, and food writer made headlines last week when her lifestyle company Goop promoted wearables that claim to use "NASA space suit material" to "rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies".

Gizmodo also contacted Mark Shelhamer, former chief scientist at NASA's human research division, whose response was,"What a load of BS this is".

Body Vibes stickers-available online in packs of 10 ($60), 12 ($64), or 24 ($120)-are worn on the skin, near your heart, to promote relaxation, relieve pain, alleviate stress, stimulate productivity, increase strength, improve sleep quality, and neutralize a hangover.

Seaport Global Securities Reaffirms "Buy" Rating for Halcon Resources Corporation (HK)
The acquisition was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through this link . Finally, Jane Street Group LLC raised its stake in shares of Halcon Resources Corporation by 133.6% in the first quarter.

Spokesman Tabatha Thompson of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration told The Washington Post over the weekend that it does not use carbon fibre anywhere in the spacesuits that are made of synthetic polymers, spandex and other materials.

What's more, NASA reportedly doesn't even use "carbonized radio-frequency material" to line their spacesuits, like Goop alleges.

According to CNN Money, Goop has since removed the NASA mention from its post, and issued a statement noting that recommending a product does not constitute "formal endorsements". We never meant to mislead anyone. We constantly strive to improve our site for our readers, and are continuing to improve our processes for evaluating the products and companies featured. These descriptions the products come with are not always in accordance with Goop's view, claims the company, since they are provided by the manufacturers. "We have learned that our engineer was misinformed by a distributor about the material in question". However, the origins of the material do not anyway impact the efficacy of our product.

"We apologise to Nasa, Goop, our customers and our fans for this communication error".
