Singapore's New Nano-Satellite Doubles Orbital Time

By wochit 20 January 2017

Enlarge Image Singapore's Nanyang Technological University has successfully launched a satellite from the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time. It's a nanosatellite that deserves special attention for its new thruster technology. These new micro-thrusters allow the satellite to remain in for space twice as long as other similar satellites, according to the university. The improved thrusters could go a long way towards fighting the problem of space debris: Man-made trash such as the old satellites and spent rocket stages that create a field of debris around the earth.
