Welcome to SGAC Ethiopia! since 2004, the establishment of Ethiopian Space science Society (ESSS) and the introduction of astrophysics and astronomy programmes in 2007 leads to the gradual change of the society and the government view towards space science for country development. Since then, Ethiopia encountered many changes in building the countries’ first observatories center (Entoto observatories center). Witch opened a window of hope for the young professionals and interested youth to peruse their dreams.

Even though space activities increased in the country there is a lot of work left to be done in catching up the rest of the world. Here SGAC Ethiopia is working on the development of space science and space application in the country by forming a highly networked group of young Ethiopian professionals and space enthusiast. Join us hand in hand in bringing Ethiopia to the future. The time is now.
