Two African satellites launched into space in a week

We always hear about satellites being launched into space but hardly hear about African satellites.

This is not the case anymore as South Africa’s first privately owned nanosatellite – nSight1 – was successfully launched into orbit from the International Space Station last week.

This was followed by Ghana’s first satellite called GhanaSat1. It was developed by university students who took two years to design, assemble and test as part of a Japanese space project.
