Uganda Launches First Satellite into the International Space Station

Uganda has today successfully launched its first satellite, PearlAfricaSat-1, a technology developed by three Ugandan engineers and their Japanese counterparts into the space. This came after America’s Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the postponement of the activity from yesterday to today Monday, November 7th.

According to NASA, the launch which was supposed to take place yesterday was rescheduled to today due to a fire alarm that occurred at the mission operations control Centre in Dulles, Virginia.

The satellite was developed by three young Ugandan engineers who include; Edgar Mujuni, Bonnu Omara and Derrick Tebusweke.
