OWC Going to Space - come with us!
Posted by: OWC Larry

Okay - a payload including a special OWC Envoy Pro FX will soon be going on a mission... and you can be there too.. digitally.

submit an image of you, your family, your dog.... whatever - and it will be loaded on our drive going to orbit.

It's a little symbolic.. but it's real at the same time. And after the journey - it's coming back from orbit assuming all goes as planned - will be able to access your photo (only your photo) and compare the bits.

Why not? smiling smiley_

We actually can't disclose much of anything until after the launch... But will be on our drive that goes to space - supporting a few things... and also we get to test the 'space worthiness' of our upcoming drive too. It's cool now- but will be a lot cooler, when we can share a lot more about it and who else is along on the trip too.

That is officially very cool. Congrats.

They could only put a small amount of data on the drive, or it would have been to heavy for launch.

Sounds good, but will the data be safe from alien marketeers?

I'm in, hope i am selected. It said to agree to the photo requirements but I didn't see them listed anywhere.

The drive isn't hardened against radiation/ionized particles?

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Musk was behind the recent jet pack sighting near LAX. Locationwise, it makes perfect sense and this is exactly the crazy kind of stunt for which he has a weakness.



It is what it is.

I didn't check that page...

but I read a while ago that many circuits and CPUs made for space applications are using older tech, such larger dies which may offer better protection agains radiations that today's tech which is pushing the limits of how small you can make these transistors.

I am curious what are they sending in space. SSD?
