One giant leap for South Africa into space science with Nyameko Royi

South Africa took an important step forward this year in space science when the Cape Peninsula University of Technology launched three nanosatellites. Although other African countries have sent satellites into space, these are the first constellation of satellites developed and designed in Africa. They are called MDASat and will be collecting data that will be used to monitor South Africa’s marine resources. The acting chief engineer on the MDA Sat constellation project, Nyameko Royi, told BizNews that this was a huge milestone for South Africa; that working with SpaceX was “an experience” and of his dream is to visit Nasa or SpaceX. – Linda van Tilburg

I’ve been combing through this latest report so that you don’t have to. I hope this provides you with a digestible snapshot of the feeding frenzy that went on at the entity with the taxpayers' money, and who, the reports says, we should be pointing fingers at.
