Bolivia to Have First Satellite Launched Into Space, From China

The "Tupac Katari"


Bolivia's long-awaited first foray into space will soon take place and government officials plan to be on hand in China when the Asian superpower launches the Andean nation's "Tupac Katari" telecommunications satellite.

A delegation from La Paz will travel to China in December to witness the satellite's launch, but it is unclear yet if President Evo Morales will make the trip.
