Talk of Space entrepreneur-astronaut Greg Olsen and solemn signing of 2017 SpaceLab Team project
provides a welcome overview of the space sector in African countries, from a legal and policy point of view, analysing how the African Union's Space Policy and Strategy (ASPS) is implemented and highlighting the various space activities in 17 countries across the continent. It also explores the on-going regional cooperation programmes, the continent's leading space actors and their roles, and the space-related regional fora and organisations, reflecting on various initiatives, including the African Leadership Conference on Space Science and Technology for Sustainable Development (ALC), the Regional African Satellite Communications Organisation (RASCOM), and the African Resource Management Satellite Constellation (ARMS-C). As such, it is a valuable source of information on space capacities in African countries.
