Bolivia's Space Program
It may come as a surprise that the poverty-stricken country of Bolivia has recently developed a space agency. The agency has officially been approved by president Evo Morales. Chinese experts will assist in the creation and launch of the Bolivian Space Agency's first satellite. Construction of the satellite, to be named Tupac Katari, is scheduled to begin in March. This is an exciting development for Bolivia.
