Bangladesh prepares for second satellite Bangabandhu-2

Christian Fernsby |
Bangladeshi Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar has asked the authorities concerned to start the process of launching the country's second satellite Bangabandhu-2 to the orbit.


He said this as Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited (BCSCL) on Wednesday held a meeting to have expert opinions to frame the project proposal in this regard.

May 12, 2018 was a red-letter day for Bangladesh when the country moved to a new era by launching its first "Bangabandhu-1" satellite.

The launch made Bangladesh the 57th nation in the world and the fourth in South Asia after India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to own a satellite.
