I n September 2003, Nigeria launched its first earth observation satellite called the Nigeriasat 1, with the goal of utilizing space technology to develop the socio-economic wellbeing of its citizens. This historic achievement paved the way for the country's journey towards utilizing space technology and its spinoff to research into earth processes, all in the hands of Nigerian scientists.
