Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. NigComSat-1 was a Nigerian communication satellite. The initial contract to build the satellite was signed in 2004. It became the first African geosynchronous communication satellite, when it was launched at 16:01 GMT on 13 May 2007, aboard a Chinese Long March 3B carrier rocket, from the Xichang Satellite Launch Centre in China. The spacecraft was operated by NigComSat Nigerian Communication Satellite Ltd. On November 11, 2008, NigComSat-1 failed in orbit after running out of power due to an anomaly in its solar array.
