Another student satellite launched. This time more of a deliberate effort, rather than a lets-see-what-we-can-pack-into-the-spare-space thing. (Nanosatellite / Milk box satellites)
I'm sure someone clever will one day come up with some kind of swarm mini satellite system. How hard can it be anyway? A bunch of pinging satellites with their own propulsion, and a big rocket to blast them to the right orbit, they use their own power to get to the right positions and you have yourself a localized GPS system, maybe to be used for giving you extra accurate positioning for a short period of time. Presumably the miniature sizes would make them hard to shoot down too..
