Who would have thought you could take a computer anywhere? Of course, there is no limit to what NASA can accomplish with the technology they have at their disposal. One of the first ever portable computers was known as the GRiD Compass.
Unlike the laptop computers of today, GRiD was one of the toughest portable computers ever designed. Since it was developed to handle the rigors of space travel, it became a fixture among astronauts throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
