More Macs In Space

By on March 12, 2006

Here’s a funny video from a space shuttle flight that features a Macintosh. I can’t tell from the video or the hosting site what mission it’s from, but the machine is a Mac Portable, which was introduced in mid-1989.

We’ve talked before about Macs in Space; one thing I didn’t realize is that Macs were trailblazers in extra-terrestrial computer use. The first ever e-mail from space was sent from a Mac Portable using AppleLink. There must’ve been much weeping and gnashing of teeth in Redmond, WA, that day.
