These Incredible Nanosatellites Are Making Old Satellites Obsolete

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Leslie Baehr
That's according to an op-ed in The New York Times by Kevin Ashton, the co-founder and former executive director of the MIT Auto-ID Center.

Satellites provide infrastructure for everything from TV to navigation to military communications. Yet last month, a satellite was launched into space that can hold the data equivalent of just seven iPhones, wrote Ashton.

But there's hope. Ashton writes:
 
We need new satellite technology. And it's arriving. Wealthy private investors and brilliant young engineers are dragging satellites into the 21st century with inventions including "flocks" of "nanosatellites" that weigh as little as three pounds.
