Small spacecraft missions play a key and compelling role in space-based scientific and engineering programs. They have been responsible for greatly reducing the time to obtain science and technology results. Small spacecraft missions tend to be flexible and can thereby be extremely responsive to new opportunities or technological needs. The shorter development times for smaller missions can reduce overall costs and can thus provide welcome budgetary options for highly constrained spacedoi:10.1029/2008eo330001 fatcat:jkfik7pxyjbwzfegujk5qr3hua
