Explore The Final Frontier With Kicksat

We spoke with Zac Manchester, a graduate student in Aerospace Engineering at Cornell, about his project, Kicksat, which he hopes will give us average Joe's and Jane's the ability to explore space.

I think the biggest thing people would do, for the average person is just open up the possibility of average people putting things in space and exactly what they'll do with it... I have no idea. I really think it's a fundamentally different ball game - when you talk about being able to put a satellite into Earth's orbit for a few hundred dollars vs now the cheapest satellite is on order of one-hundred thousand dollars.
