Kathmandu, January 2

Nepal is set to launch its own satellites to space by mid-May with the help of two Nepalis, who have completed master’s degree in engineering from a Japan-based university and are pursuing post-doctorate degree.

According to Rabindra Prasad Dhakal, chief of technical department, Nepal Academy of Science and Technology, the two have been provided Rs 20 million to launch the satellites named ‘Birds 3’. The amount was released to develop three satellites simultaneously and preparations are under way for the launch by mid-May.

The satellites will take photos of various parts of the country on a daily basis and also disseminate information about possible disasters. NAST scientists and the Minister of Science and Technology are scheduled to leave for Japan before the launch of the satellites.

Once the satellites are launched, Nepal will not have to pay huge sums of money to gain information collected through the help of satellites owned by other countries. NAST will store photos and information transmitted through the satellites at its ‘ground station’.

Has Nepal launched it's own indigenous hot air balloon?

Also Birds don't fly in space. Looks like these NAST scientists don't know about Space and they plan to launch own satellite in 4 months?

They need an actual scientist to evaluate these kinds of projects not जन्कु नेता.
