NASA Sunglasses

OK, you've heard of the OMEGA Speedmaster Professional and the Speedmaster X-33, the watches officially flight qualified by NASA for all manned space missions? Well, a friend just sent me a link showing sunglasses that are officially flight certified by NASA. No, they're not Ray Bans. These glasses are made in Austria by a company called Silhouette International Schmied AG. Check out:

I was surprised how much detail the NASA site had regarding these glasses. Almost reads like an ad for Silhouette Titan Minimal Art frames. Pretty cool.

These glasses might go nicely with an X-33, IBM Thinkpad, Hasselblad camera, and Carl Zeiss binoculars.

John,

It's as though EE were planing on selling those and that was your sales pitch.

LOL

you just need to go to junior space camp and you'll be all set.

Actually, I wouldn't mind at all selling those glasses. I doubt we could though, as we would sell only the NASA ones and not the entire Silhouette line. We just might have to sell Ray Bans instead.
