NASA engineers at its Ames Research Center are working on a very cool project "PhoneSat." The space agency is developing smartphone-powered nanosatellites. PhoneSat 1.0 is the HTC's Nexus One-powered satellite, while the other PhoneSat 2.0 is powered by Samsung Nexus S smartphone.
 
Each NASA PhoneSat nanosatellite is one standard CubeSat unit in size and weighs less than four pounds. A CubeSat is a miniaturized satellite in the shape of a cube that measures approximately 4 inches.
 
NASA engineers kept the total cost of the components to build each of the three prototype satellites in the PhoneSat project to $3,500 by using only commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and keeping the design and mission objectives to a minimum for the first flight.
