Micro Spacecraft To Explore Planets - Space.com  NASA and The Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo, CA are preparing to flight test 'micro spacecraft' as early as 2006. The first versions would be attached to larger space vehicles as 'black box' flight recorders to provide an independent monitor of conditions as standard-sized craft attempt to land on other planets. Micro spacecraft could also serve as landing scouts, sent ahead of craft containing human astronauts.     
HP Reveals Groundbreaking Design for Future Nano-electronic Circuits - SpaceDaily  HP has announced that its researchers have created a new way to design future nano-electronic circuits using coding theory. The result could be nearly perfect manufacturing yields with equipment a thousand times less expensive than what might be required using future versions of current technologies. "By using a cross-bar architecture and adding 50 percent more wires as an 'insurance policy,' we believe it will be possible to fabricate nano-electronic circuits with nearly perfect yields even though the probability of broken components will be high."
