I am currently looking into the possibility of very tiny automated drone transportation. I hope to prove viability by testing using orbital mechanics experiments. Achieving geostationary orbit and successful reentry is the projects main goals.

Is it possible? Yes. I've seen way less powerful hardware do it. Will it do it for long, no, that thing is going to be dead from radiation really quick. What rocket are you planning on using that has Delta-V to get there, and then get you back?
