Oh what to do with an Android phone for fun – Send it into space [VIDEO]

I am pretty sure this voided any warranties that might have come with the phone but a few days ago not one but two NexusOne phones were launched into space. It was part of an experiment by the Mavericks Civilian Space Foundation to see if the parts found in low cost smartphones could not only survive extreme high and low temperatures but the vacuum of space as well.

Each of the rockets that the NexusOne’s were strapped to reached speeds of Mach 2.4 which was recorded by the phones using their built-in accelerometers. Unfortunately though only one of the phones actually survived the landing from which two and a half hours of video were retrieved. This is just a 2 minute snippet of that video.
