You may remember the nauseating video that we saw of the Nexus One that was strapped to a rocket. And now, the folks at QuestforStars.com have taken it one step above and sent a Motorola Droid into space with a GPS tracking system and digital camera into space, and recorded the whole thing. The Droid was loaded with an application called LapseDroid, which they used to take time lapsed photography of the journey to share with us. While the initial journey, shown in the video after the break, didn't go quite exactly as planned, they do have intentions of upgrading some equipment and trying this again. [via QuestforStars]

I also love how he put a giant Android decal on the outside of the payload. He's obviously a fan... :)
