After launching country’s first artificial satellite ‘Bangabandhu Satellite-1’, preparations for second satellite ‘Bangabandhu-2’ are on process, as informed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the National Parliament House on June 6.
At the beginning of the parliament session, Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury asked to start the question-answer session fixed for the Prime Minister. Then, in reply of a question asked by the Independent MP (Member of Parliament) Mr. Rustam Ali Farazi, Prime Minister said-It takes 5 to 6 years to create a satellite. That’s why we are taking preparations to build the satellite ‘Bangabandhu-2’ from now on.
Since a satellite’s life span is 15 years, we are taking preparations with a view to sending a satellite before earlier one is done successfully, added Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. She said- Similarly, we are up to start working on Bangabandhu-3 satellite after Bangabandhu-2 is accomplished. Actually, the process would be consequently going on. Image collected.
