A palm-sized Japanese satellite in orbit around Earth will flash a Morse code message that will be visible around the world from next month, the mission commander said on Friday.

Researchers hope the satellite, measuring 10 centimeters cubed and launched from the International Space Station on Friday, will become the first orbiter to transmit an LED message across the night sky.

Morse Code is not a foreign language, it was co-invented by Samuel Morse, an American.
