A satellite, no bigger that a domestic fridge, blasts into orbit from a secret military launch site.
Controlled from the ground, it stealthily moves towards the satellite of a rogue enemy country. Suddenly it explodes, destroying the second satellite and shutting down the communication capability of the country instantly.
It may sound like the beginning of a James Bond film, but scientists in the US have warned about the potential misuse of satellite technology.
Dr Köhler explains that miniaturisation of satellites has been possible thanks to the results reached by nanotechnology research, especially over the last two decades.
