Response to our Cell Phone call
from the Moon contest has been unbelieveable!
Once our switchboard crashed from
the onslaught of calls - we knew that this
contest had struck a chord with moon lovers - as
well as people who can hardly get reception in
their dining room!
Answers to a few questions we
1) NASA Space Shuttle calls do
not qualify as they are not placed from the moon
and they do not use commercially available cell
phones like the Motorola Razr.
2) Don't pay attention to that
picture - you don't need to use an Iphone to
place the call!
3) There is probably no way to
access a base station on the Earth using a
common cell phone - you will need to set up a
base station on the moon.
4) Satellite is not cellular -
this contest is for use with cellular. Dual
Cellular/Satellite does not qualify.
5) People from any country (or
planet, I suppose) may claim the prize.
6) We resent the comments by Eric
Schmidt, CEO of Google, implying that our
contest belittles their Moon Challenge.
