Chennai, Jan 7 (PTI) A 'small' revolution has taken root at some universities across the country.

With a little push from the Indian space agency, more and more students are now building small satellites.

These satellites ride to the outer space as piggybak payloads on Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) rockets that put into orbit bigger earth observation satellites.

"For the past five years we have been encouraging university students to build satellites.It gives them an avenue to explore this field and also helps us develop human resource for our space programme," D V A Raghava Murthy, Project Director, Small Satellites, ISRO told PTI.

The SRM University, which is hosting the 98th Indian Science Congerss, will be the first institute to have a satellite launch this year.
