    Bigger isn’t necessarily better—at least where satellites are concerned. Modern “CubeSat” satellites are smaller and more numerous than ever. A satellite today can be a “hitchhiker,” aboard a larger mission, as the video below mentions. Or, a CubeSat can be launched from the International Space Station.

    #1 LOL . . . That was me, too. When making critical cuts, I take a piece of scrap, do my no measuring technique, and make sure it is nice and tight. Then make the real cut. This assumes the tool guide or jig or fence did not move.
