Smartphone manufacturers are very happy to undergo experiments to promote their products. One such company has now been undertaken by Xiaomi, which has launched its best-ever-affordable smartphone, the Redmi Note 7, into space.
He survived the ascent to 35 375 meters and a temperature of -58 ° C
Redmi Note 7 was sent into space by a gas balloon, which took him to a height of an incredible 35 meters, thus narrowly crossing the ozone layer. At this height, the temperature is -375 ° C, which the smartphone survived.
It was mounted on the balloon in a special holder made to measure and printed on a 3D printer. The whole experiment was planned by space research experts. The structure sent into space was equipped with a dual tracking system to monitor the load and also the position of the balloon. He then returned safely here, fully functional.
However, he was not sent into space in vain. He created such beautiful 48 MPx photographs of the Earth there. A look we don't see every day, not photographed with a smartphone.
