Steady progress... and lots of excitement

Things are going quite well with Astdroid! Wanted to give a quick update this morning and remind you where you can follow the project in depth.

On Sunday, we were able to complete our first tests of the application, balloon, and payload. With the exception of a tiny bug in the Android app, things couldn't have gone better.

If you haven't already, stop by www.Astdroid.com to find pictures, video, and data from the testing and make sure to keep checking back. The next couple weeks are going to be pretty exciting as we are getting very close to being launch capable. The website is also a great way for anyone who's looking to participate to hop right in with their ideas. We've got a discussion group going as well as a disqus comment system that let's you comment without needing to create an account.

I'll leave you with a nice bit of press we got today at Wired.com, check it out: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/08/gallery-gadgets-in-space...
