Two SA female astronauts will go to the International Space Station. The South African National Space Agency (Sansa) CEO Humbulani Mudau announced the country’s ambitious plans. According to MyBroadband, South Africa aims to fulfil this remarkable venture within the next two years, as revealed during the opening ceremony of the Russian Optical and Electronic Complex for Detection and Measurement of the Movement Parameters of Space Debris in South Africa.
This collaboration with Russia is crucial in the face of the growing collision threats posed by the rapid increase of participants in space exploration and satellites in orbit, according to Roscosmos Director General Yury Borisov. He expressed hope for the dynamic development of cooperation between Russia and South Africa, emphasising that this joint project might not be their last.
Humbulani Mudau, appointed Sansa CEO in April 2023, brings a wealth of expertise in Space Science and Technology, making him a key figure in realising the country’s space exploration ambitions.
