Pakistan Set to Launch Communication Satellite on May 30

Pakistan is set to launch its second communication satellite, Paksat MM1, on Thursday, marking a significant milestone for the country’s space and communication technology. 

This advanced satellite, created by Pakistani scientists and engineers, represents a major step forward in improving internet connectivity throughout the nation. The launch will occur on May 30 from a satellite launch center in China.
