Google’s Mobile Blog never disappoints, and today is no different. They’ve just posted some interesting pictures and a few short videos of a green Android figurine.. in space. They apparently tied figurines to 7 weather balloons and sent them off to infinity and beyond. They tracked the balloons with Nexus S devices and recovered 6 of them within a day, and they found the 7th one a month later. They discovered that the Nexus S can function at altitudes of up to 60,000 feet, and it began working again when the balloons descended. The Nexus S can also withstand temperatures as low as -50°C. Not really much in the way of news here, except to show off how resilient the Nexus S (and Andy) can be. So what do you think about this? Surprised the Nexus S held out that long? Surprised it didn’t last longer? Leave a comment below. We look forward to your feedback!
