ArduSat project to send an Arduino-based satellite into space. This means I will have a week's runtime on the satellite and will be asking Javamex readers for your suggestions of experiments/photographs that you would like to see taken from the satellite. More details to follow shortly: watch this space!
UPDATE: The ArduSat team have been enormously successful in reaching their funding goal within a few days of launching the project. The goal is now to raise funds to send a larger satellite, allowing more interesting experiments. This is really a unique opportunity for ordinary developers to get involved.
