Ground breaking work at Southampton University. Working with BizSpark partner Segoz, this group of innovators developed the ASTRA weather balloon to carry a Windows Phone 7 into the stratosphere - as high as Concorde. On returning to earth, data captured by the phone was fed into a Windows Azure based application.
Not just for fun, but to help Southampton University’s scientists understand how the upper atmosphere affects the Earth’s climate.
Now that’s Cloud Computing!
We have been working closely with Steven Johnston and András Sóbester members of the Astra Research
