In the event that you’re excessively youthful, making it impossible to recollect, floppy circles were previously a noteworthy power in PC stockpiling. Presently they’re an obsolete image of processing wistfulness. Gerst tweeted a photograph of his diverting find on Tuesday.
Gerst says he found a locker on the ISS that likely hadn’t been opened for quite a while. One of the floppies is marked as containing Norton Utilities for Windows 95/98. Some have NASA images on the names.

Two or three the plates are titled “Group Personal Support Data Disk” with the names Shep and Sergei on them. These were NASA space traveler William Shepherd and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, who were both piece of the Expedition 1 team in 2000.
The floppy-circle oldie but a goodie is a fun notice of the ISS’s persevering heritage that currently ranges two decades. Innovation has made some amazing progress over that time, however relics still remain.
