P&P Optica goes to space

spaceship launch

At P&P Optica, we are proud to announce that a PPO spectrometer will be part of an upcoming space flight!

P&P Optica is providing a spectrometer that will fly in the ISS as part of a series of educational demonstration experiments developed by MILAD Technology (London) and T^2 Science & Math Education Consultants (Houston) with logistics support from CASIS (Center for the Advancement of Science In Space) (FL).

Follow the preparation with us! More information about the launch can be found at SpaceX Missions.

On Friday April 10, P&P Optica was pleased to officially present the PPO spectrometer to acclaimed Canadian astronaut Bjarni Tryggvason.

Bjarni and his team at Waterloo-based QDAC Inc. are sponsoring the inclusion of PPO’s spectrometer in the June 2015 space mission.

P&P Optica is appreciative of the opportunity to work with Bjarni on this project!
