PhoneSats have a future — perhaps as low-cost weather satellites or Earth-observation platforms.
Advances in CMG and battery technologies as well as computer algorithms are merging with NASA’s human deep-space exploration ambitions to drive the work.
During the PhoneSats brief stint in space, they communicated with ground stations and even managed to send back photos of the earth.
