TINY U.S. SATELLITES MAY BE COMMUNICATIONS FUTURE the size of
wireless handsets may be used for future applications, announced
researchers on Friday. Two of minuscule satellites, weighing under a
half a pound, were in space in late January. As battery power eroded,
the of the satellites ended on Friday. Called "picosats,
"two satellites sent and received data transmissions from. They
were launched by scientists at Aerospace Corp.to Ernest Robinson, head
of the mini-satellite project, satellites may take the place of
larger, costlier telecom in existence today. Rockwell International
Corp. the satellites' silicon relays and wireless gear. predict a
slightly larger type of satellite will be called a "nanosat,"
which will be deployed in groups to advanced telecom services.

LAB IN A PEA POD -- Three principal components of Sandia's integrated micro chem lab are small enough to fit easily inside a snow-pea pod. Shown from left to right are a surface acoustic wave sensor array, a preconcentrator that collects chemical vapors for gas-phase analysis and a miniature gas chromatograph column. The entire system, designed to also analyze liquid samples, fits into a package about the size of a thick paperback book. (Photo by Randy Montoya)
