Lenovo ThinkPads Arrive at International Space Station


A Russian rocket that arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) this summer delivered ThinkPads to space.

The ThinkPad T61p installed in the ISS provides faster, lighter and more energy efficient notebooks to perform a full range of tasks.

The delivery continues a long-standing relationship ThinkPad has with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), but these are the first ThinkPads created by Lenovo to be used at the space station. All earlier NASA ThinkPads came from IBM.

Eventually there will be more than 100 ThinkPads on the space station and in NASA’s Space Shuttles, which will help do everything from steering the Space Shuttle to running robotics to providing streaming video.

Also, for the first time this year, every astronaut on the ground will be utilizing a ThinkPad T500 in their daily work. This initiative lowers training costs by allowing astronauts to become proficient at utilizing the most critical piece of hardware equipment they use in space, while they are on the ground.
