More power Scotty!

I powered the HAPPy computer for a solid 4.5 hours on the Energizer Lithium AA battery pack today – this is more than enough needed for the flight which should last just over 2.5 hours!

The computer¬† (an Alix board with USB ports connected to GPS and cell phone)¬† will SMS GPS co-ordinates to the recovery team as it descends which, along with Apple’s “Find My iPhone” app, will provide redundant methods for finding the capsule when it lands.

Shout out to John Reeve for introducing me to htop, a very cool top replacement.
