The incredibly talented team at Surrey Satellite Technology are preparing to launch a satellite which can run Android apps! Not only that - they want app on board. If you are a UK national, you could win a chance to have your App to fly on their satellite - The STRaND-1. The competition runs from 1st August to 2nd September 2011. For more information, and an entry form, visit www.facebook.com/nanosats. Just think of the possibilities... an app to measure solar radiation, an app to take photos of deforestation, or even an app to play the tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind to passing lifeforms. If you're a UK based Android developer - get on to this competition now! If you're outside the UK, we'd love to hear about your ideas for apps - drop them in the comment box below. More info about the satellite and the competition is available on Wired or at SSTL's STRaND-1 homepage
