Another interesting tidbit i found.
Posted in sci&tech as i feel it fits here better.
*Mods please move accordingly.


NASA's PhoneSat project will demonstrate the ability to launch the lowest-cost and easiest to build satellites ever flown in space – capabilities enabled by using off-the-shelf consumer smartphones to build spacecraft. A small team of engineers working on NASA's PhoneSat at the agency's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Calif., aim to rapidly evolve satellite architecture and incorporate the Silicon Valley approach of "release early, release often" to small spacecraft.

That is actually pretty cool. It really goes to show how quickly consumer goods have improved that they are even trusted to be in space.

Reminds me of the story that, the US army was using PS3's to build supercomputers out in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Oh man I know you are joking but I can see it now.

Apple hold a press conference to announce that their iPhone 6space edition has spotted a new galaxy and is now claiming that anything that the iPhone has taken pictures of is now property of Apple.

They begin building iShips to take them to their new iPlanet in their new iGalaxy. Now Samsung is being sued for using the word galaxy to market their phones when clearly Apple saw it first.
