Sprite is the world's smallest spacecraft. It's built with totally off the shelf parts and designed to comunicate with ground stations from low Earth orbit. Three Sprites are currently mounted to the outside of the International Space Station. Eventually we hope to build ChipSats the size of a fingernail that can perform many of the functions of larger spacecraft.
