If you scream in space, will anyone hear it? This app will reveal all2/26/2013
Bet Ridley Scott never thought anyone would test the creepy tagline from 1979's "Alien": "In space, no one can hear you scream." Researchers from England's University of Surrey have blasted a smartphone into space loaded with a specially designed "Scream in Space" app that will play video screams like the one shown above and then see if the phone's monitor registers the sound. The "smartphone-sat" device will orbit the Earth for six months, transmitting pics using the 360 app to its own Facebook page. If you're booking a trip to the moon or Mars soon, this gizmo will also provide crucial feedback on how your mobile device will survive the trip. [Source]
