As innovations in the space sciences continue to evolve at an astronomical rate (with any and all possible puns intended), engineers are using their know-how to examine ways to enhance the efficiency of various operating systems and hardware.

From satellites designed purely for the aims of collecting space junk accumulated from past missions to developing the technology behind autonomous deep-space navigation governments and agencies are investing their talents and resources into beefing up unmanned space mission capabilities from a number of angles.

Now a team of engineers from MIT has come up with a platform that makes the process of launching mini satellites not only easier but also assists with more accurate data transmission.

Their work involves CubeSats, or U-class spacecraft, with NASA ramping up launch efforts in recent years.
