Product Description

This is the story of kalamsat, the tiniest satellite which took a giant leap!

On 22 june, 2017, global space history was made when the world's smallest satellite was launched by a nasa rocket. The spacecraft, named kalamsat after former Indian president and rocket scientist a.P.J. Abdul kalam, was designed by a seven-Member team of young Indian space enthusiasts, led by the redoubtable srimathy kesan of space kidz India (Ski), chennai. This incredible journey started with a balloon satellite launched by ski in 2015 with plans now to build the first ever ‘Space park
For India’.
The book captures behind-The-Scenes events explaining how kalamsat was built in a workshop-Cum-Office – 'The headquarters' – at srimathy kesan's chennai bungalow. It unfolds the transformation of the lives of the team as history was being made. It shows how an 18-Year-Old scientist and his young co-Warriors, hailing from humble backgrounds and with limited resources – with exams to write and college to attend – followed their dream steadfastly and brought their remarkable project to fruition.
An inspiring tale for young and old, from gulab jamun to the stars
Showcases a new India in the making.
