Ghana Launches Its First Satellite In Space

It was a result of a 2-year effort by students at All Nations University in Koforidua with help by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, costing $500k.

The satellite was sent into orbit from the ISS, and is sending signals to Ghana now.

Ghana wants to track its coastline and prevent illegal mining, as well as foster future educational and industrial progress in space.
