New Millennium Spacecraft

It's called the New Millenium Initiative, a revolutionary new way to build spacecraft for the 21st century. Mary Kicza is with NASA's Office of Space Science. "We're preparing to launch smaller spacecraft on the order of 250 kilograms. New Millenium is going to push that even further still and get to the 50 kilogram and hopefully into the tens of kilograms" range for spacecraft.
