Sony Electronics has kicked off a promotion, inviting consumers to select the next DVDs and CDs that will be sent to astronauts in the International Space Station. Consumers who fill out a survey will automatically be eligible to win the DVP-FX1 portable DVD player and the space collection of discs for themselves. The survey asks people to pick their favorites from various movie and music genres. There is also a Best Picture category for poll-takers to pick their favorite among this year's Oscar nominees. The most popular DVD and CD from each category will be announced March 15 and shipped to the space station this summer.
DVD players will boldly go where few consumer electronics devices have gone before. On the next space shuttle Discovery launch scheduled for March 8, astronauts will have five Sony DVP-FX1 portable DVD players in tow for playing movies and music. The three astronauts on the Discovery will be delivering the players and about 50 DVDs and CDs to the International Space Station. The DVD player, which retails for $1,499, has a 7-inch LCD and weighs about 1.5 pounds. NASA bought the players, but a representative would not say how much NASA paid for them.
