Away 39, 40, 41 and Away 42   The Space Chair Project

More show business! On September 26 and 27, 2009 we flew four missions carrying chairs to the edge of space.
These flights filmed an amazing TV commerical for Toshiba that played all across Europe and Japan.
We flew four vehicles over two days. Each vehicle carried two cutting edge HD cameras. The basic configuration of the vehicles were the same however the cameras on each were set up to capture a unique shot. 

MSNBC's Alan Boyd at the Cosmic log has a great write up about the missions.
