We Sent The First Commercial Tweet From Space.

We flew our Schmitt Space Communicator SC-1x prototype onboard Blue Origin’s rocket ‘New Shepard’ on April 29th, and July 18, 2018. Both times we were able to demonstrate our WiFi hot spot service inside the crew capsule that can be used by WiFi-enabled payloads and payload specialists.
