SATLLA-1's mission, which starts on Thursday, is to test out its star-tracking program, which helps the satellite position itself by using imaging from the surrounding stars.

Advanced satellite was launched into space in July
The satellite is carrying a tiny laboratory in which four medical scientific experiments to test drug resistance will be conducted under conditions of micro-gravity.
The satellites will be used to receive signals from Earth and to calculate the location of the transmission source for rescue purposes.
