Abstract

Extracted from text ... South African satellite project Mosibudi Mangena, Minister of Science and Technology, has announced a threeyear R 26 million satellite development project - the South African Small Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellite - to be carried out in conjunction with SunSpace & Information Systems of Stellenbosch. Magana said: "The department views this as the beginning of a long-term space programme. Dr Bart Cilliers, managing director of Sunspace, said the launch was envisaged for the second half of next year, and will "probably be by the Russians, from a submarine or land-based site, using modified ballistic missiles." ..
