Inspired by the vision of His Majesty the King, Bhutan started space activities in 2016 by participating in the 2nd Joint Global Multi-Nations BIRDS CubeSat Project which was hosted at Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan. As a result, the country’s first satellite named BHUTAN-1 was developed and launched in 2018. Following the launch of the country’s maiden satellite, much interest among the general public and especially the youth has been generated.
