Three Phonesats with amateur radio downlinks in 437 MHz are slated to launch December 17.
The YouTube description reads:
Did you know your smartphone is more powerful than most computers in space right now?
A few smart folks at NASA realized this as well and thought… hey… why don’t we turn a Phone into a satellite.
And so Phonesat was born. NASA is taking Google Android phones and turning them into cheap spacecraft. And by cheap I mean under $10,000. EACH.
