Description JSC2006-E-54702 (20 Dec. 2006) --- Space Shuttle Discovery photographed by the Micro-Electromechanical System-Based (MEMS) PICOSAT Inspector (MEPSI) mini-satellite, shortly after its release from Discovery's payload bay. The coffee cup-sized low-power inspection satellite will demonstrate the use of tiny, low-power satellites to observe larger spacecraft. It will test the function of small camera systems and gyroscopes. Photo credit: DOD Space Test Program.

Description STS113-370-012 (2 December 2002) --- The horizon of a blue and white Earth and the blackness of space form the backdrop for this view, as two miniature satellites are released from the Space Shuttle Endeavour as part of an experiment referred to as MEPSI. Funded by the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the two small satellites, which are tethered together, were released from Endeavour?s payload bay (visible in foreground) to fly free for three days as a technology demonstration of the launcher and use of micro- and nano-technologies in space systems.
