African Space Industry Top 10 Under 30 – Class of 2021
The African space ecosystem continues to enjoy tremendous growth in terms of technical know-how and innovation. Governments, private companies and international bodies have continued to invest in academic institutions, research and programs that advance the industry in Africa.
Africa has the highest youth population in the world, and the industry grows because African youths keep contributing innovative, groundbreaking ideas that have kept Africa evolving. In 2019, we started the Top 10 under 30 series to spotlight the profiles of the top 10 innovators, engineers, researchers, writers, and contributors to the Africa space industry. This year, having gone through a thorough selection process, we are once again presenting Africa’s top 10 under 30 in the Africa space industry. These young people continue to display outstanding courage and contributions to the industry, reminding us at all times that Africa is ready to take a place in the global space market.
