SpaceX and NileSat Join Forces to Launch New Satellite in 2022

If our satellite can fare half as well as their spacefaring Tesla, we should consider ourselves so lucky.

NileSat has signed an agreement with SpaceX - yeah, the Elon Musk SpaceX - to launch the NileSat 301 on a Falcon 9 rocket in 2022. The four-metric-ton satellite will be able to expand NileSat's communications and digital broadcasting capabilities across the African region, and is expected to last over 15 years. After having launched its past three rockets with Arianespace in French Guinea, this contract marks the first time NileSat cooperates with the private American space giant. And if SpaceX can plan out a mission to Mars and toss a car into orbit, we're sure that trusting them with our satellites can only be a good thing.
