Can We Build That Here?

How long will we be building space systems that are (a) way bigger than they need to be and (b) completely customized for a single purpose? For comparison, we are still operating on the mainframe computer model, where computers ‘had’ to be the size of rooms. That didn’t last for computers, and it is just a matter of time before we transition to the desktop computer model of being able to just plug and play with dozens of different modules. One company is working on just that future…lets see what Deb is doing before we get there though.
