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?

Oh, well.
