Irix 300SR Is The First Space-Ready Irix Lens: Irix 300SR space lens


Irix has created a lens that's specifically designed to be used on satellites in space that observe the earth from orbit. 

An experimental prototype of the lens, simply called Irix 300SR, will be featured in the main optical section of the Swiatowid nanosatellite that will be launched into a low Earth orbit by the Polish company SatRevoution. 


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.
