President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has informed ARSAT 1, the first satellite fully developed in the country, will be launched into space, while praising state “capacity to develop technology”.

In her Twitter account, the President published the satellite is the first geostationary satellite to be fully produced in the country, making Argentina only of the only eight countries in the world able to develop the technology.

“This is not a miracle. It is not luck. It is the consequence of the governments will and decision to invest in technology,” she stated.

The satellite, which was built in Bariloche during eight years of research, was being transported to French Guiana where it will be launched into space.

It will occupy an Argentine space orbit that was demanded by Britain due to lack of use and serve telephone, internet and television broadcast services.
