On Thursday, India once again broked the global space record by launching the world's lightest satellite weighing just 64 grams, called Kalamsat, designed and developed not by professional space scientists and engineers, but by 18-year-old Tamil Nadu student Rifath Sharook and his team.

Mission director Srimathy Kesan told that the total flight time of the rocket was 240 minutes . The satellite, assembled at her T.Nagar residence in Chennai, separated from the rocket after spending 125 minutes in the space's micro-gravity environment.

The tiny satellite, named after Abdul Kalam, was flown by a NASA sounding rocket and the lift-off off was from the space agency's Wallop Island facility around 3 pm (IST). Kalamsat was the only Indian payload in the mission.
