New Small Satellite Missions Launching To Space


NASA is launching four small satellite missions to do science and test new technologies. These shoebox-sized spacecraft each tackle a different challenge. A pair of small satellites will track each other and use lasers to transmit data to the ground. One will explore how antibiotics work in space to keep astronauts healthy. Another will test an innovative braking device to bring science experiments back to Earth. Finally, a unique antenna will send data back to Earth, a thousand times faster than before. These small spacecraft will help NASA reach its ambitious goals for space exploration. (Music)
