TIT: Kenya to become fifth black African country with satellite in space

South Africa

South Africa has launched a number of satellites into space including its first biggest private satellite in 2017. The country launched its first satellite in 1999.

The most recent nanosatellite called the nSight1 was launched to capture images with its remote sensing camera. Locally built and designed in South Africa, nSight1 is expected to study the largely unexplored lower thermosphere and send information back to earth.
