Screen Innovations Goes to Space
Screen Innovations announced Thursday that it has been invited by NASA to put the first projection screen in space.
The SI screen was included on the SpaceX 6 rocket that took off April 14 and headed towards the International Space Station, and is called the ISS ViewScreen.
The company described the screen as "a very portable, 65-inch, ambient-light–rejecting, zero-gravity screen that will replace the13-inch, tablet-sized displays that crewmembers have been using to communicate with Mission Control."
“Working with NASA is a dream come true! As a company, SI is a fun-loving group of innovative, dedicated professionals who continue to push the envelope every day," Ryan Gustafson, chief designer, president, and CEO of Screen Innovations, said in a statement.
"It’s safe to say that SI has once again gone where no other screen company has gone before.”:
