64 grams of glory! NASA launches 'made-in-India' satellite

24 Juin 2017

In the pictures below tweeted by News Agency ANI, the students were seen rejoicing after the launch of the satellite. The mission lasted for 240 minutes.

Students are basking in the glory of victory after the successful launch. The satellite was designed and built by 18-year-old Rifath Sharook along with his other teammates. The name is christened after the former Indian President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.

A team of students from Tamil Nadu has made India proud as USA space agency NASA has launched the world's smallest satellite built by them.

Rifath said he participated in a competition "Cubes in Space" jointly organised by NASA and an organisation called "I Doodle Learning" and his satellite was selected.

Finally, Brookfield Asset Management Inc. increased its position in Enbridge Energy Management by 1.7% in the fourth quarter. Renaissance Technologies LLC increased its position in shares of Enbridge Energy Management by 67.1% in the fourth quarter.

Last month, Shaarook expressed his excitement over the news that his satellite will be launched by NASA.

Rifath Sharook, an Indian teenager hailing from Tamil Nadu's Pallapatti, had created the smallest and lightest satellite in the world for US's National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The satellite, which is lighter than a smartphone and made of reinforced carbon fibre polyme, operated for 12 minutes in a micro-gravity environment of space after its flight. KalamSat will be used to exhibit how 3D-printed carbon fibre performs in these conditions.
