Duct tape is used for many things…but contrary to popular belief, it’s not that helpful for duct work according to this article.

According to the article, this fabric-based tape with a rubber adhesive has many uses – car repairs, door handles, and repairing stuff around the garage or yard. Apparently astronaunts on one of the Apollo missions used it to repair some equipment to get back to earth safely. But it doesn’t wear well so it’s probably not a good use for what it was originally intended, duct work.
