New Satellite powered by a smartphone

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.
