Netflix sends an iPhone in space as a part of its Hack Day event

Netflix introduced the Hack Day back in 2014. It is an internal company event in which any Netflix employee can participate. The event has one goal in mind and that's letting employees have fun while hacking around, creating interesting projects in the process. As a part of this year's Hack Day, a group of Netflix employees has send an iPhone in space, while the device is playing an episode of "Star Trek: Discovery". And it's all recorded by a GoPro camera. Sweet.

Netflix's Hack Day has been producing some quite peculiar results as of late, like the 8-bit House of Cards episode, a morse-code powered search engine, and a Netflix kiosk, where you could sign-up and watch some of your favorite shows.

There is no such thing as outer space

Ah, it was only one iPhone. Dam, I was hoping they would get rid of, or sorry send a lot more of them in space.

Why not send you also? You're perfect for space waste.

Netflix could send Tim and Ivy to the space and then sling-shot them to the Mars in hope we never hear about them again.

Funny that it was a 5 year old iPhone and not the X
