My chum Rick Curl just sent me an email with the subject line "Finally, Some Serious Science!"
It seems that CUSF (Cambridge University Space Flight) is presenting something they call "Scream In Space!" This involves the launching of a nanosatellite carrying an Android smartphone into orbit around the Earth.
As they modestly say on their website: "We're carrying out an experiment that will change the scientific world forever. The plan is so audacious that not even NASA has attempted it. The question is this: can anyone hear you scream in space?"Click Here
