I think Bart's right about not getting involved with this prize.
But, a 20g satellite is a very interesting thought project. All the same,
if the delivery system into orbit is much larger than the payload, what's
the point? We'd already have a larger piece of gear in orbit.
Oh well; I do like the paper airplane on the N-prize's webpage. Would a
paper airplane slow down before it burns up?
