Midweek news roundup

By Eileen De Guire / August 22, 2012

Some pretty cool stuff is going on out there… MIT ‘microthrusters’ are the size of a penny, could reposition tiny satellites Bus-sized satellites require massive engines for even the slightest movements, but as far smaller structures become a possibility, a tiny driving mechanism can offer usable thrust. To serve this next-gen tech, MIT saw a…
