Feels like a publicity stunt to show the world that Microsoft is still innovative and hip like Google and Facebook. Didn't Google have a barge data centre or something a few years? That seemed to disappear into the ether pretty quickly once the PR had died down. Taking bets on the first company to announce a data centre in space (no DMCA up there....).

 

 

In space, cooling is not a problem, unfortunately cosmic radiation is.

Yeah, publicity stunt.

 

Cooling isn't so hard that it needs such an elaborate & complex solution.

 

Good luck swapping out a failed HDD etc in a timely fashion.

I agree with the futility of this "research". Just so you know MS just wait till a percentage of the servers are non-operational and then replace the whole unit (Rack, POD, SpaceStation, MoonBase)
