Indian boy invents world’s smallest satellite

An 18-year-old Indian boy invented the world’s smallest satellite. He created as part of a NASA-sponsored contest. The satellite weighs only 2.26 ounces (64 grams).

The student who built it, Rifath Sharook, spoke about his experience in the contest, “Actually, we are feeling very happy. Actually, this contest was judged by scientists and engineers in NASA. One of the scientists from Colorado space grant consortium has appreciated us using an idiom. Actaully he said ‘we nearly fell out of the chair’. Actually, that means he was so excited and he was so amazed.”

NASA will launch the tiny satellite on June 21 from Virginia. They’ll launch it on a SR-4 rocket from Wallops Flight Facility.
