Volksat

I keep wondering if the whole KISS principle (a personal favorite of mine) might be sensible to apply more thoroughly. Diane, VA3DB pointed me at a satellite design I hadn't seen before: a picosat that would carry aerogel ultracaps as well as traditional nicads. It was dubbed Volksat. I think there are lots of sensible and good ideas contained here.
