African Space Research Program

Two volunteers from the African Space Research Program work on the African Skyhawk jet in a suburb of Kampala, Uganda. The program aims to launch a Ugandan into space in the next decade.

In the rambling Ntinda suburb of Kampala it seems there were plenty of people who thought Chris Nsamba was crazy when he embarked upon a project to send the first Ugandan into space – from the backyard of his mother’s home.
