NASA has started to shoot miniature satellites into space, satellites the size of a coffee mug. These cube shaped mini satellites will be powered by your average smart phones like Google’s Nexus One smartphones. That’s right no high tech power source required here , just your simple average smart phone.
All this is due to NASA’s PhoneSat project, this basically stresses on making use of commercially available components like smart phone and other devices . This drastically reduces the cost of a satellite to about $3500.
