First nanosatellite ready for launch (Bangladesh)

BRAC University yesterday became the first Bangladeshi educational institution to get its very own nanosatellite, developed and assembled by three of its students using technology and facilities of a Japanese university.

“BRAC ONNESHA”, a cube measuring 10cm along its edge and weighing around one kilogramme, will be launched into low Earth orbit, at an altitude of around 410 kilometres, sometime next month through Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.
