Recent advances in the micro- and nanotechnologies for innovative space missions are reviewed. Capabilities, limitations and applications of the micro system technology are discussed. The following aspects are considered: concepts of microsattelites, new nanomaterials (fullerene, tubules, molecular devices, conducting polymers), and information hardware. The prospects for the development of molecular manufacturing for space industry are analysed.
