Nsamba head of African Space Research Program (ASRP), has revealed that the space probe to be launched soon has self-defence, anti-time missile features, which protect it from being hit by missiles destined to destroy it in case it passes in the space of another country.
Question: Does this pose a threat to our airspace and security?
After its launch, they will put a mouse in it and will have it lifted to the stratosphere by a helium balloon.
Question: Why do Irish mice not have such opportunity, especially as we give overseas aid to Uganda?
The space probe is fitted with cameras with a wide angle fish-eye lens to be used in taking pictures of Uganda from space and other features on the planet. The others are a thermometer and Global Positioning System trackers.
"We shall send a mouse to space. If it comes back alive, it will mean that Uganda is able to send human beings into space and we shall embark on constructing a new space observer that a person can use," Nsamba said.
Question: Why is Ireland outpaced by Uganda in science and vision?
