Title: Science in 60 – Tiny Satellites, Big Science

When cube satellites first sprung on the scene in the late 1990s, they were seen as cheap, cute and novel. But today, these lunch-box-sized orbiters are heralded as powerful, cost-effective tools thatmore » help strengthen our national security presence in space.
