WATERLOO, Ontario, July 21, 2016 — A spectrometer made by P&P Optica is en route to the International Space Station, launched July 18 aboard the SpaceX-9 spacecraft for use during its mission to deliver several tons of supplies to the station.

P&P also contributed a spectrometer to the SpaceX-7 launch in 2015.

"We are still uncovering ways for spectroscopy to be used creatively here on earth in applications ranging from mineral mapping to chemical detection, so who knows what it might uncover in space as part of the experiments,” said P&P Optica's CEO Olga Pawluczyk.
