The How-To Guide to Satellites: Putting it Together

Building satellites isn't easy. They're complex, expensive, and not to mention hard to make! This is why whenever NASA makes a new satellite—like the MAVEN mission to Mars—its scientists and engineers do everything they can to make sure it's done right.
