To the Stars. On May 11th, 2018, Kenyan scientists at the University of Nairobi worked with the Kenya Space Agency and international partners to launch 1KUNS-PF, the country’s first home-designed satellite. While in orbit, this first effort to take Kenya to the stars is expected to help with everything from weather forecasting and wildlife monitoring to basic research and disaster management.
