Finally we have lift-off for the creation of Philsa, the Philippine Space Agency. The law creating Philsa was signed Thursday last week by President Duterte. It capped a nearly three-year countdown during which Filipino scientists successfully built 3 micro-satellites that are now orbiting the earth. Diwata-1, Diwata-2, and Maya-1 were built under a Philippine government program that is now called Space Technology and Applications Mastery Innovation and Advancement or Stamina-4-space.
