UK Scientists Launch the World’s First Smartphone-Powered Satellite

Comments Off on UK Scientists Launch the World’s First Smartphone-Powered Satellite

The world’s first smartphone-powered  satellite was successfully launched into orbit yesterday. STRaND-1 went into space aboard the Indian Space Research Organization’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. Only 11.8 inches tall, the nanosatellite will use an Android-powered Google Nexus One phone to collect scientific data, take pictures of Earth and allow people to upload videos that will play in space. Click here to view the embedded video. The UK mission was developed by the University of Surrey’s Space Center (SSC) and Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL). By sending their STRaND-1 spacecraft into space, the UK researchers have beaten  NASA —who had announced similar plans last year—to the punch. Only 11.8 inches tall and weighing 9.5 pounds, the nanosatellite will use the smartphone to run several experimental apps to collect data from space. Unlike conventional smartphones which stop working around 60.000 feet, the one used by STRaND-1 was specially designed for use space. Besides the STRaND-1, other satellites aboard the Indian launch vehicle include an ocean-monitoring satellite developed in collaboration between the Indian Space Research Organization and French Space Agency, the Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite, which will look for large asteroids whose orbits might bring them in contact with Earth, as well as two satellites designed to study the brightness of stars. + STRaND-1 Via GMA News

Comments Off on Eco Pig Designs Set to Begin Construction on SCH-1 Shipping Container Home

Eco Pig Designs is a micro home design company that is about to begin construction on a new 40/45 foot shipping container home called the SCH-1. The modular residence has separate living and sleeping areas, a good sized bathroom and is wheelchair-friendly. The SCH-1 has a U value of 0.20w/m2k and is available with an even lower u value up to 0.10w/m2k. The container is designed to be constructed in a factory and delivered to the site as a turn key model for a target price of less than £40k. If the container is used as a primary residence it will also be VAT exempt (which will save thousands).
