Tiny satelliets could reach space with stamp-sized thrusters

It’s barely the size of a key on your keyboard but it may take tiny satellites where few people have gone before.

MIT professor Paulo Lozano is designing prototype “microthrusters” that would propel pint-size satellites in orbit and into deep space.
