More on smart phone-enabled DIY space (update)

The Make:Blog has an article on the test flight of the Nexus 1/Android smart phone-controlled micro-satellite. (see previous post)  Included is an on-board video from the payload, which was flown to 28,000 feet aboard James Dougherty's Intimidator-5 using a CTI N4100 motor.  It also includes a video that describes the payload. 

This was also covered by Wired's Gadget Lab.  {Silly comment/question removed.  The answer was clear if I just look at the photos/video.}

MAKE magazine volume 24 will be dedicated to "DIY Space."  Methinks I'll want that issue.
