Yet another Islamic country launches satellite into space
DOHA - Qatar launched its second satellite “Suhail2” after the success of the first satellite “Suhail1” to meet the growing demand for space services in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The “Falcon9” rocket was launched from the “Cape Canaveral” base at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA, carrying the Qatari satellite “Suhail2” into space after arriving earlier at the “Spacex” launch facility at the Kennedy Space Center.
The rocket was successfully launched in cooperation with NASA, as the rocket continued its journey to put the satellite into orbit.
The “Suhail2” is a “DS-2000” satellite that was manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric "Milco", and will provide multiple media services.
