ISRO Launches Kalamsat, World's Smallest Satellite Named After Dr. Kalam & Made By Students

At an age when most of us were struggling with assignments, students today are doing and creating things that are far bigger than most of our greatest imaginations. 

Just like this bunch of students who made a satellite that was recently launched into space by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Developed by Space Kidz India, a Chennai-based organisation of students, this satellite called Kalamsat can help in communication during times of disasters such as cyclones and floods. 

This is said to be the world's smallest (weighs 1.2 kg approx.) and lightest communication satellite and it was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

Kalamsat was named after the former President of India and noted scientist Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and will be carried by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). In fact, PSLV-C44 is the first mission of PSLV-DL. 

This is the first ever satellite made by students that will use PS4 (the fourth stage) as the orbital platform.

This is reportedly the 46th flight of the PSLV and is also carrying Microsat-R, an imaging and surveillance satellite for the DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation).

While announcing Kalamsat's launch in New Delhi, ISRO chairman K. Sivan said, "The main purpose of student satellites is to enable students to conduct experiments in space. We see that students get involved in the whole process of building the associated systems, including the satellite bust and power system, instead of concentrating on the main science." 

Sivan further added, "We wanted to tell them that they can just bring their payload and we will plug in. All the paraphernalia is available with us. Students should just focus on the science, experiment, research and innovation."
