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? The BBC reports of an attempt by a non-South African by the name of Chris Nsamba to build what he hopes would be the first crewed spacecraft designed and built in Africa. 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.
