So, if you were looking for cost effective "off the shelve" components to create a balloon that would follow the spaceship Discovery to the edge of space on its last mission what are some of the parts would you use? According to the folks from Quest for Stars (http://questforstars.com/) you would use a couple of Droid X's (http://www.androidcentral.com/droid-x) loaded up with some Seidio 2600mAh extended batteries (http://store.androidcentral.com/seidio-innocell-2600mah-extended-battery/8A37A7945.htm) for GPS tracking and photo taking purposes.

I wonder if they'll auction off those Droid X's and how much do you think it would go for? I mean you can say " My X has been to space!" :big smile:
