I was listening to a BBC segment with regards launching satellites and it was 
amazing to hear how far along the state of the art of technology has progressed.
There was a detailed description of a Japanese-made satellite purchased by the 
government of Ghana to monitor the algae growth in river banks and coastal 
areas of West Africa. It uses the International Space Station as a launching 
platform. Its diameter is only 10 cm, can you believe? To put this in 
perspective, in this limited amount of space there is:
1. High resolution camera2. Communication Module3. Data Storage Unit4. Power 
5. Who knows what else, the above are just my guesses, but the most amazing 
part is that everything is well protected from the space elements.
Well, this is a photography list and staying almost on topic...what kind of 
high-resolution lens fits in such small package.
