10 Interesting E-Mail Facts

When was the first e-mail from space sent?

The first e-mail from space was sent in 1991 by the crew of the STS-43 Atlantis. They used Apple’s early AppleLink software on a Macintosh Portable to send the following:
“Hello Earth! Greetings from the STS-43 Crew. This is the first AppleLink from space. Having a GREAT time, wish you were here… send cryo and RCS! Hasta la vista, baby… we’ll be back!”
