Here at Newsround we're fascinated by space, but can you imagine how exciting it would be to have a spacecraft named after you?

Well that's what happened to Patrick, who won a national award to have his name on one of the world's most hi-tech satellites.

Patrick's satellite will be one of 27 circling the earth, creating the most advanced global positioning system ever!

He says: "I've always been interested by space. It's fascinating because no one really knows what's out there."
