SpaceWatch.Global is pleased to present the 33rd episode in our podcast series The Space Cafe Podcast: Val Munsami – why affordable space tech for anyone comes at a price

Episode 033 features a special guest Dr. Valanathan Munsami. 

Valanathan Munsami is the CEO of the South African Space Agency SANSA with whom he is currently experiencing the renaissance of space travel first hand. The increasingly affordable space technologies such as small or cube satellites are not only tempting South Africa with unprecedented opportunities. But they also come with a price. And that price is high.
