Nexus S in Space

Posted by Mr. Leslie Wong On September - 4 - 2011

On the last US Space Shuttle mission, STS-135, part of the Atlantis payload carried to the ISS were two Nexus S phones. The Nexus S is being used to record sensor data and capture video footage on SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites), a miniaturized satellite.

You can download the Open Source sensor data logging application, Cellbots’ Sensor Data Logger, in the Android Market and do something with it.
