Jordan is the next country from the Middle East to successfully launch a satellite into space, following the KhalifaSat, the Jordanian nano-satellite signifies a great hallmark in history. With the help of Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), a leading global developer of renewable utility-scale projects, Jordan created the CubeSat (JY1-SAT). The Jordanian invention was constructed as part of a collaborative agreement between FRV and Crown Prince Foundation (CPF), a respected institution that promotes cultural, intellectual and social initiatives amongst the youth of Jordan. This satellite was designed by the younger generations of Jordan. The future of this Middle Eastern country seems to be in good hands with young and talented minds such as the CubeSat developers. Jordan's focus on youth development is inspirational and hopefully a trend that will continue among other countries within the Middle East and beyond. 

Giant Leaps for Jordan 

This incredibly crafted nano-satellite was constructed by a team of 19 young engineer students from a variety of Jordan`s fine universities. Jordan has initiated in a long-term plan to enhance the younger generation`s potential, providing newer opportunities for them to develop and broaden their skills. In addition to JY1-SAT, the team of young engineers also built a ground station from where they can conduct satellite operations post-launch. The nano-satellite currently resides orbiting the planet at around 600km above Earth`s surface. The overriding mission of the CubeSat is to disseminate images of Jordanian cultural, archaeological and tourist sites. Additionally, the satellite is connected to ground stations around the world for research and educational projects.

"We appreciate the strategic alliance we have built with FRV, as such partnerships support us in making big progress in achieving CPF`s development objectives as well as fulfil our mission in supporting Jordanian youth." - Dr. Tamam Mango, CEO of the Crown Prince Foundation."

This exceptional feat undertaken by Jordan will hope to inspire many more individuals to pursue their dreams in changing the world for the better. Jordan`s entry into the space race highlights the technological achievements and the potential for further accomplishments within the nation.
