Small spacecraft have become popular for a number of reasons, most prominently the needs to reduce overall cost, be built more quickly, and spread mission risks. NASA has been challenged with crafting a program that continues to produce meaningful science within the constraints of the available budget. Still, pound for pound, small spacecraft are not precisely inexpensive, given the effects of complexity, launch costs, and a greater degree of risk. Historically, science spacecraft have demonstrated increasing reliability, but this trend might not continue, given the shift to managed risk. There is generally less money available to smaller programs to test spacecraft functions and operational procedures prior to launch. Small spacecraft are also generally less robust. Efforts to reduce failure potentials through the application of more reliable components, better testing, and advanced design techniques should receive greater attention. Despite the risks, however, small spacecraft fulfill important roles in earth science, astrophysics, space physics, and planetary science. NASA's current generation of small spacecraft is capable of impressive levels of performance.

'The author of The Edible Balcony with 100 ingenious ideas for gardening on a budget.' The Bookseller 'Alex Mitchell's new book Gardening on a Shoestring offers a delectable range of ways to create a garden on a budget.' The Independent In our increasingly busy and chaotic world, more and more of us are turning to gardening as a way to create a pleasant space to be in. However, as we continue to tighten our purse strings, the cost can make the pastime a source of further stress rather than one of pleasure. Alex Mitchell's Gardening on a Shoestring is full of inventive ways to achieve the garden you want on a budget, whether you are creating one from scratch or improving what you already have. Packed with money-saving tips, it combines classic gardening skills with simple, creative ideas. Sometimes it's about going back to the old ways of doing things, techniques in danger of being forgotten; other times it's about adapting to the new, saving money on equipment by making your own from inexpensive materials or knowing how to get bargains from nurseries and garden centres. So learn how to prune before you panic buy, grow food for peanuts, create pots for a pittance, propagate plants for nothing and make your own plant feed from weeds - all for next to nothing.

What am I going to do in life? What am I supposed to do? How can I decide what to do when everything looks like a sham? What is this American Dream? Are we not all living our lives on a shoestring? By the time I completed this book I realized the nature of my problem. I rearranged my work to look like an eighteen-hole golf course, and I saw the light. I realized that I was a guitar player living in a golfer's world. We don't understand our leaders because they are golfers, and they are living on a golf course. They don't understand us because we are living on a shoestring. I realized that I was just shooting a bad round. I reformatted my work into a language that the golfer's can understand. I looked at my journey through the American Dream for the last forty years like I was playing a round of golf. As I play the course, I try to stay right in the middle of the fairway, neither hook nor a slice. I try to stay out of the sand traps and avoid the water. Unfortunately, I've had to spend some time in the woods looking for my ball. I hope this book will teach you the attitude that overcomes adversity and an attitude of hope and of humor, because we'll need it. And I hope that I find my ball. See you at the nineteenth hole!
