India (WFLA/RTV) – NASA launched the world’s smallest satellite on Thursday.
The satellite weighs just about two ounces, lighter than a smartphone.
It was created using 3-D printing and built by an 18-year-old student from India.
The satellite was launched on an SR-4 rocket from a space facility in Virginia.
The satellite was chosen from 86,000 designs submitted from 57 different countries in a contest held by NASA and a global education company.
