A designing understudy from Tamil Nadu has made a name for himself with his advancement which won him the Cubes in Space worldwide plan rivalry. The youthful trailblazer, S Riyasdeen, is a second-year understudy of Mechatronics designing from Sastra University.

Riyasdeen made a 37 mm estimated FEMTO satellites VISION SAT v1 and v2 with a payload of 30 mm weighing 33 gms and is currently the world’s lightest FEMTO satellite, the New Indian Express detailed. He hails from Karanthai in Tamil Nadu’s Thanjavur.

Aside from polyetherimide thermoplastic saps, the kid conveyed 3D printing innovation to make the satellite. The opposition was directed by National Aeronautical Space Agency (NASA) and had 1,000 members from 73 nations. The opposition was held for understudies between the age of 11 and 18.

The satellites are intended to record around 17 boundaries with 11 sensors and VISION Sat v1. They are planned to be essential for the SR-7 NASA Rocket Mission.

The SASTRA-TBI in 3D Printing and Internet of Things (IoT) will offer a brooding award of Rs 5 Lakhs to Riyasdeen to satisfy his fantasy about building up a fruitful beginning up, SASTRA Vice-Chancellor S Vaidhyasubramaniam said.
