    and not a peep on here about it.

    I suppose because of the open Android system. There were likely some battery stipulations as well (NASA is still hesitant about Lithium Ion but that is finally changing)

    I'd like to see them using an iPad for this stuff as a remote control and remote viewer.

    This was a pretty long time ago, and I'm pretty sure they sent iPhones up in a set of similar experiments.

    iPads have really sucky cameras as it stands right now, that would be pretty useless.

    yes I suppose 6 months ago is "like totally forever ago"

    and the transmitting camera would be on the unit not the iphone/ipad ;)

    Cool Story, bro.

    Did you know that in the year that the Nintendo DS Lite came out two mountain climbers took a few of them all the way to the top of Mount Everest?

    Neither my story or your story have anything to do with iPhones, so why post them in an iPhone forum?
