NASA Administrator Charles Bolden recorded a congratulatory video message to students at St. Thomas More Cathedral School in Arlington, Virginia on becoming the first elementary school to build a small satellite and have it launched into space. On May 16, the school’s St. Thomas More (STM Sat-1), was deployed from the International Space Station. STMSat-1 was launched to the ISS on Dec. 6, 2015 aboard an Orbital ATK Cygnus cargo resupply spacecraft as part of NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) IX mission. The STMSat-1 mission is an educational mission to provide hands-on, inquiry-based learning activities with an on-orbit mission to photograph the Earth and transmit images to our primary ground station and to remote ground stations throughout the country.
