Billions of dollars and dozens of years are spent to build satellite systems, and most efforts involve getting all the parts to communicate and work together. Electrical engineer James Lyke decided to make that process faster, smarter, and more flexible. He started with the guestion: "Wouldn't it be nice to have a system that worked like plugging a mouse into a computer?" This was the inspiration for Plug-n-Play satellites -- modular spacecraft components that can go together via multi-port panels -- no matter what kind of system is being built. With this revolutionary system, scientists and engineers have more freedom to choose different ways of building spacecraft. "The greatest thing about what we're doing here is that it was a fantastic idea and people have really come together and made it work," says aerospace engineer Millay Morgan.
