A great example of how we can have a 2-way technology transfer between the space program and the developing world. If we are going to explore beyond Low Earth Orbit (which we should) we will need to adopt the engineering philosophy used in the developing world. Namely engineering solutions need to be: robust, and not need a great deal of training or resupply. It also shows how open source tech like the Open Data Kit (ODK) app on +Google Android phones can help the developing world. Cool Stuff!
