Local technology scene touched another milestone with the making of nano-satellite, named Onnesha, by a team of students of Brac University, with technical support from a Japanese University. Here is a couple of things to note:
Dr. Md. Khalilur Rahman, a mentor of this project, said, “what is more important is that Bangladesh has joined the club of Space researching countries”. He expected that this will eventually motivate Bangladeshi nationals to make even rockets in coming days.
Point to commercial implication, Mr. Rahman said that investors are rushing to china and India because they know that these countries have capable manpower at cheap rate to make technological breakthrough. “This small initiative of of making a Nano satellite will give a signal to them also”, he added.
