An anonymous reader writes “Here’s a chat with a Nasa astronaut about how they fix system outages on board the International Space Station, what kind of computing tech they use on board and how he would like to see the iPad used on the ISS.” He talks about using 5 year old laptops because they had been tested to handle the stresses of space travel, as well as the importance of being able to read emails and send pictures to family while aboard a space station for months at a time.
