In 2010, HTC attacked a Nexus One device to a rocket which was then fired. The rocket travelled right to the edge of the space with the smartphone appended to it, which recorded the entire video of the flight. The experiment provided a unique scenario where the power of a smartphone can be used. Now, HTC is planning to send Nexus One on an even longer mission, one that will take it to space.

NASA PhoneSat

The company is collaborating with NASA to have the smartphone sent to the space. Of course this wouldn’t be a pleasure trip, rather the Nexus One device that will be lucky enough to go for the ride will be used as part of NASA’s PhoneSat program.

NASA’s PhoneSat program is a highly innovative idea of incorporating today’s smartphones into the very design of a satellite. This may sound somewhat absurd but is perfectly workable since the hardware packed by today’s smartphones is enough to run a satellite.

The device will be launched by NASA in 2013. Of course, NASA didn’t just see the display of Nexus One, found it impressive and decided to send it to space. Rather, the space agency has put the device through a number of rigorous tests. These ranged from extreme vibration tests to thermal-vacuum chambers as well as high-altitude balloon flights. Only when Nexus One endured through all this that NASA decided that it was the one.

Space enthusiasts, as we are, are hoping that folks over at NASA would record the video of the flight which would definitely be a treat for our eyes.
