As I begin to make a case for the long overdue foray of Kenya into the space arena, may I kindly bring to your attention a recent Journal article that I co-authored with Prof Calestous Juma titled “Establishing a Space Sector for Sustainable Development in Kenya” in the International Journal for Technology and Globalisation. (Follow the link to the journal article.)
I highly recommend this journal article to all. Moreover, the assertions and postulations of the article will significantly form a basis for my starting point of this important discussion. This website not only aims to expound the stated objectives of the article, but further enrich its postulations for charting a path of integrating space-based technology for sustainable development in Kenya.
In summary, the two broad questions I shall address at length are:
- Why does Kenya need space-based technology?
- How will this technology be optimally implemented in a sustainable manner?
The answers to these two broad questions will begin to emerge as we exhaustively examine pragmatic and attainable space technology solutions pertinent to the present Kenyan societal context.

Waswa this is a g ood initiative. It provides a platform to scientists and the likes to venture and share knowledge in the space arena…cheers!
I agree Aggrey. Spread the word and encourage people to participate. You know this stuff kinda scares people and I am trying to reverse that through some basic exploratory enlightenment.
