Ok well it’s not a real satellite but more of a nano-satellite (CubeSat)
I must admit when i first read the word satellite on the news I had this picture of the whole big thing
Word is that it was developed by UoN and the University of Rome with the help of our Japanese friends, under the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs. Japan offered all the funding in tune of $1million (KES 101 million) while we (UoN) were the brains behind it.
It was launched at the International Space Station Florida on Monday 2nd April n the cube will be used “to observe farming trends and to monitor the country’s coastline.”
Was kinda hoping they would build something related to telecoms but ow well, it’s a start
What do you guys think about this, step in the right direction?
