Azure and Windows Phone 7 in Education

Azure and Windows Phone 7 in Education

Get Microsoft Silverlight

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.

Why?

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!
