At the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California, NASA is preparing tiny satellites the size of briefcases for a mission to Mars.
Called CubeSats, swarms of these small marvels could potentially take on NASA's riskiest missions -- think exploring the surface of Venus or the volcanoes of Io -- at a lower cost than full-size, multi-instrument satellites.
