  What would you do if you were miniaturised?
Updated 22 April 2003, 14.22
From the BBC's Future Generations campaign, on the set of the Borrowers
Space scientists' latest project is to send tiny, robotic space ships out in space to study asteroids.

Thirty or more microsatellites would swarm around the space rock gathering data.

What we want to know is what you would do if you could be miniaturised.

Would you pop into your mates' bodies and check out their internal organs, or would you get an ant to be your pet and go for rides on it?
