A huge milestone!
Bahrain is set to launch the first 100% Bahraini-built satellite project! His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa has announced the satellite will be named “Al Munther”. This is such a huge step for Bahrain in the field of space science! Previously, Bahrain and UAE launched a joint satellite in space and this project would completely be carried out by Bahrain’s geniuses!
HH Shaikh Nasser also unveiled the official logo of this Bahraini space mission!
35% of the work on the satellite has been completed and the launch is expected to take place by the end of this year!
Al Munther will capture images of Bahrain and its regional waters and collect data that will feed into several sectors!
