Africa Joins the Space Race

With the recent visits of Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to Africa emphasizing economic development, little is mentioned much less known that many African nations are emerging as viable participants in the space technology space race, joining other countries such as India, Brazil, South Korea and China.

Leading the pack are Nigeria and South Africa. Both African countries have opened space agencies to begin their trek to space with an eye on developing space technologies ranging from satellites to other areas such as telemedicine for health, land mapping and telecommunications.

Nigeria established the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) in 1998 and developed a 25-year roadmap for the Nigeria Space Program. The focus includes basic space science and technology, remote sensing, satellite meteorology, communications and information technology, in addition to defense and security. Furthermore, three years ago, Nigeria became the second country in Africa, after South Africa, to launch its own satellite.

Excellent news, it had to happen.

There will be an African renaissance in our life time! I also believe that once Africa finds it's self pride, the intelligent and considered peoples of the African Disapora will return and build successful commercial enterprises alongside their Africn brothers and sisters

Yes, and the western white powers of today will be a footnote in the history books. Just like the Greeks today, look at them rioting in their streets, pathetic. They used to be great. You are going the same way!!

That's not fair. The Congolese rocket launch saved my day, and achievements like that should be encouraged. They bring a lot of people joy.

is this what they are wasting our aid money on? they should try to FEED themselves and get out of the Stone Age before aspiring to space. AND it will be us who pay for this latest monkeyshine.
The aid foreign that we give to North Korea is immediately invested in nuclear weapons aimed in our direction yet I don't see American racists complaining about that. Why?

They are completely nuts. I bet they never read any African journal.
Africa isn't being helped but paying the outstanding IMF debt to profit of western nations.
