Launching into Orbit. On 12th November 1970, Kenya first made its mark on international space science when the NASA satellite, Uhuru, was launched from the San Marco platform in Malindi. As the first ever earth-orbiting mission dedicated to studying the stars with X-Ray astronomy, Uhuru made internationally important astronomical discoveries while also making local history.
