Using gold-plated wires thinner than hair, a team at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is working in collaboration with Oxford Space Systems (OSS) with a view to developing a new type of deployable antenna for satellite systems. Satellites are pretty expensive to build, but they are very expensive to get into orbit. Although recent events could indicate a drop in costs, the typical estimation for putting a kilogram of payload into low-Earth orbit (LEO) is in the order of $10,000. LEO varies in definition but is generally regarded as being an altitude in the region of 160km to 1,800km.
