So tomorrow, Nigeria will be launching a satellite into space!


The satellite will be launched in partnership with four other countries; Japan, Ghana, Mongolia and Bangladesh, and would be launched into space from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA.

The Nigerian CubeSat, which is called; NigeriaEdusat-1, is designed, built and owned by the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) in collaboration with National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) Abuja, Nigeria and Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan.

The satellite is going to be launched on Thursday June 1st at 10:55pm and it is the first ever university owned satellite to be launched in Nigeria.
