The University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) in partnership with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA have launched the COSMIC-2 satellite in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

SpaceX’s third Falcon Heavy rocket originally meant to take off in a predawn launch on Tuesday took off from the Kennedy Space Center at 2:30 am, delivering two dozen research and weather observation spacecraft into orbit on a marathon three-and-a-half mission for the U.S. Air Force.

The mission included the successful landing of the Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters back at Cape Canaveral, and a SpaceX recovery boat netted part of the rocket’s payload fairing for the first time after trying for more than a year.

In attendance was the Honourable Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh and the UENR team from Ghana including Dr. Amos Kano-Bah, Head, Department of Energy and Environmental Engineering (UENR), Sunyani Ghana, Dr. Kamila Kabo-Bah, (UENR), Dr. Mark Amo-Baoteng, Head, Earth Resources Research and Innovation Centre (EORIC-UENR) and Mr. Prince Awuah, Assistant Registrar, UENR
