Abstract:There is perhaps no part of the world which could benefit as greatly from an active space program as Africa. An African presence in space will, however, result only from an African demand for such a program. The suggested vehicle for this space effort is an African Space Consortium (Afrispace). After a brief dicussion of some of the many benefits which will flow from the formation of Afrispace (in the fields of communications, defence, meteorology and resource detection), the article goes on to explore possible strategies for the consortium's formation.
