British engineers are planning to put a mobile phone in space to run a satellite.
I read the first paragraph then I saw Google and knew what was coming next.
Yes it's Andy Android to space......, what OS version I have no idea. The phone was said to be a smartphone in the sub-£300 ($450) price range. The Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) said with new processors that can run at 1Ghz, and come with loads of flash memory. They might be able to use it to run a 30cm-long satellite. The mission has two basic ideas, to see if the smartphone can run in outer space. Then run the satellite to take pictures of the earth.
The SSTL did say they was not going to take the phone apart but, instead modify the OS due in part the software is open source. This will allow them to adapt the phone's functions.
Google sent Nexus S smartphones to an altitude
of 18km (60,000ft) on balloons last year
So could Andy be the next Buzz Lightyear "To infinity... and beyond!"
