Egyptian Space Agency has not yet deterred from its program of building 35 education satellites

The future of engineers, students and specialists in Egypt is bright, no doubt. After all, the Egyptian Space Agency (EgSA) is working on a huge plan of developing up to 35 educational satellites. With the satellites’ help, these interested candidates will learn and perform programming practically to make it easy for them to control satellites. Mohamed el Quosi confirmed the EgSA commitment to make it a reality during a symposium. The symposium was about the forecast of Arab cooperation in the space sector. As for Egypt, it has human resources, including how experienced the country is when it comes to satellites and space at large.

The State Information Service said that the symposium’s organizers were EgSA and the United Emirates (UAE) Space Agency. Like what has now become the new norm, the meeting participants took place through a video-conferencing application. Several hours after the meeting, Hope Probe arrived at the Martian orbit. The mission is quite notable for the UAE since it marks the beginning of its indulgence in interplanetary missions. Its arrival was on Feb 9, 2021, several months after its launch that took place on July 19, 2021.

Therefore, sooner or later, the Martian atmosphere’s complete picture will soon be at people’s disposal. It will also help study this atmosphere’s layer, including its weather and climate and how they affect oxygen and hydrogen. Mars is also known for losing oxygen and hydrogen into space. Whereas the reason behind that remains a mystery, this mission is most likely going to solve it.

The unwavering plan’s confirmation comes about a month after EgSA announced the 35 educational cube satellites’ development. He highlighted that its main role would be to teach as many space scientists hailing from Egypt as possible during the previous statement. Equally important, the project will involve EgSA, but even the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) would also be part of it.

Following such partnerships, Egypt would collaborate with the United Nations Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. This joined venture would facilitate the development of the Earth Observation satellite. Upon its tests and launch, it would assist Egypt in armed forces and help the country monitor the space environment.

In the announcement from EgSA’s board in December last year, the project would cost $225 thousand, equivalent to E£4 million. According to Quosi, Egypt appreciates UAE for being a huge role model. The latter has strategies that bring tremendous change to the Arab world. Egypt also says that the Hope Probe’s mission is commendable.
