Africa on Its Way to Conquer Space

In Russia, Cosmonautics Day is celebrated every year on April 12. On this day in 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first man to go into space.
The conquest of space also continues in Africa: the countries of the continent are seeking to cooperate increasingly with major players in the field.
What are the key African issues in this regard? What are the prospects for space cooperation between African countries and Russia? Does Africa also need space sovereignty?
Discover the answers to all these questions in the report by our virtual presenter Joy.
