Mexico, re-conquering the Universe
Mexico is taking actions to follow the steps of countries such as the U.S., Russia and China, regarding aerospace development. There was a recent invitation to participate in the “Misiones Espaciales Mexico” contest and the AztechSAT 1, Mexico’s first nano satellite, will be launched in 2019, thus entering an era of re-conquering the universe. The objective of the contest is to design and build a high-precision hydro-propelled shuttle with capacity to lift useful cargo. The AztechSAT 1, 100% Mexican, will be launched from the International Space Station (ISS) and it is expected to be capable of communicating with the Globalstar constellation.
