+ 0 - 1 | § NASA iPhone


iPhoneOK, this is exactly the sort of thing that this blog pretty much has to post:
The students received a $2,500 cash prize from NASA after they wrote a winning paper in a space systems engineering contest.

The paper focused on the benefits of using the iPhone in NASA ground operations during inspections and pre-launch buildup for launch vehicles, beating out six other schools' projects from around the country.

In addition to the cash prize, the students' project won them the opportunity to attend a NASA launch, something that Samantha Vaitkunas said made her feel "like a proud mama."
My favorite part of this is that, basically, NASA gave some students a prize for coming up with a good justification for the agency spending government money to buy iPhones, which I completely empathize with.
