Cost of Data

How much do you think it costs to get one MB of data from Hubble? ...The answer, pessimistically, is about $668.

How much does it cost to send a text message?  About 10 cents.

So if you do the math, data in the form of text messages are over 4 times as costly (to us, the user) as data from Hubble.

By the way, Hubble is out of commission as of last night.  Crap.
