Dr. Minoo Rathnasabapathy presented keynotes at the 1st IAA (International Academy of Astronautics) African Symposium on Small Satellites and the 5th African Space Generation Workshop. Read below for more details:
1st IAA African Symposium on Small Satellites
In February 1999, South Africa’s first satellite, Sunsat-1, was launched. This 64-kg microsatellite was built by staff and students at the University of Stellenbosch and operated successfully for 2 years. Twenty years later, Stellenbosch and the surrounding area has become a Space hub for both local industry and academia, and became the venue for the first IAA (International Academy of Astronautics) Symposium on Small Satellites in Africa.
On Tuesday, November 30, Rathnasabapathy gave the keynote address to start that day of the conference.
