NASA to put sensor in latest black boxes

Abstract:
NASA is using nanotechnology to guide near-term explorations of the moon and eventual trips to Mars. A joint project of NASA and El Segundo, Calif.-based Aerospace Corp. will develop a "black box" that uses nanosensors weighing a few grams. The nanosenors will be used to gather data about flight vehicles re-entering the earth's atmosphere from space. After the perilous high-speed part of re-entry, the black box will "phone home" by satellite and send data.
