World’s small­est space­craft are now suc­cess­fully trav­el­ing in low Earth or­bit and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with sys­tems on Earth, the Guardian cited sci­en­tists as say­ing. The minia­ture satel­lites, named “Sprites”, are only 3.5 cen­time­ters in length and width and weigh just 4 grams each. They carry ra­dios, sen­sors and com­put­ers pow­ered by sun­light.
