I have a new story published in The Guardian:
'Launching equipment into space is an expensive business: it costs $10,000 (£6,300) to lift every 0.45kg (1lb) of stuff into orbit. Making things smaller and lighter is, therefore, a natural route to reducing the cost of launching a spacecraft. It is no surprise then that the principles of nanotechnology - and the potential to reduce the mass and size of spacecraft and payloads - are focusing the minds of space engineers. ...'

Oh this was such a joy to be involved in. I learnt so much while preparing for it, and during the recording! Great… https://t.co/4n5Rh9WdFl
