A Theta in space!

Thought this was pretty cool.

[Photographs from space] The first THETA S for use in space, jointly developed by RICOH and JAXA, was mounted on the outer hull of the ISS (International Space Station) | RICOH THETA Lab.

Very cool - in space no one can see the CA on a green chain wire fence (or something like that). The Theta is a camera with potential that is yet to be fully tapped. I have yet to see shots taken with the underwater housing.

I would love to read the specs on the modifications they made (radiation hardening in particular). The thermal management side of things is probably interesting too, come to think of it!

That's pretty cool to be fair. I'd quite like to replicate the shot. Just need and rocket and a space station.

And a Theta.

Extremely cool - applications likes these is when the Theta shines!
