Students at the Naval Academy have built a satellite for $50K.
Boeing gave them a grant for $250K because they didn't think
it could be done for so little. Now they get to build 4 more...


Slashdot discussion:

Me thinks my suggestions in my post on March 11, 2001, to the
"NASA Ends Project..." thread on building microsatellites to
move small asteroids into near earth orbits just got a little
more real.
