The state of space science in Africa

N Mhlahlo

Abstract


There has been an increase in the number of space science activities and facilities in Africa in the last 15 years. This increase, however, is not proportionate to the indigenous user community for these activities and facilities. In this paper, I discuss these activities and their benefits for the African region, and point out some of the challenges for space science in Africa.
