A group of student satellite engineers at Cambridge University
has taken issue with the famed tagline of Ridley Scott's
1979 horror masterpiece Alien
, and is making a valiant effort to make your screams heard from space
. The project is part of a collaboration between the group Cambridge University Space Flight
and British space company Surrey Satellite Technology
that will test how well a satellite in orbit can be controlled from a smartphone-based guidance system, while also handily frightening off any extraterrestrial invaders who happen be hovering around the planet.
