I mentioned that my old school was involved in a project to create a
micro-satellite. Ours were to be launched for us if we won the competition:
I'm thinking, do you think we can actually do our own launch? Is that even
possible some day? The Mrs. Sat micro-satellite was small enough to fit in a
micro-wave oven, but I don't know how much she weighed.
There were lot of hurdles to get past (like how to resolve the problem of
cosmic waves changing bits in the computer - a big *big* problem that far
out in space).. -- A lot of redundancy and checksum'ing was discussed when
I last heard from the team working on this.
I know this is thinking a bit big... but, imagine a spacebridge satellite in
geo-spacial orbit above noisebridge :) Can we do that?
