Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. On the Today programme, R4, God help me for bothering to listen, it was reported that a mobile phone has been tested in space, and that it may be possible to use the technology to control satellites. Just imagine what that will do for bored teenagers at busstops.....
  2. E.T needs to make a call home.
  3. BBC News - Mobile phone to blast into orbit The linky. It's a really good idea and a promising way to reduce the costs of spaceflight. Just put it in a metal box for EMC shielding and the job's a good un.

    There's an app for that ;-)
  4. I imagine the roaming charges may be quite expensive.
