Mazaalai is the first university satellite of Mongolia named after the Mongolian endangered Gobi bear – Mazaalai.
It was sent off into space in the United States recently.
The satellite accompanied the “SpaceX Falcon 9” rocket.
The project under which the satellite was launched is supported by UNESCO and Japan.
The satellite has been designed by students.
A satellite is advantageous for the nation in many ways such as bringing the ability to conduct independent space studies, capture the geographic picture of a country, develop more accurate maps, and better prevent natural disasters.
