Submission + - Ugandan seeks to build African space shuttle (bbc.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Who says that only big, militaristic states are capable of manned space flight?

Not that Nsamba, the Ugandan founder of the self-styled African Space Research Programme, doesn't have any good role models. NASA's first African American flight director, Kwatsi Alibaruho, traces his roots to Uganda.
