Myanmar’s very own satellite system was successfully launched into orbit on Wednesday after two years of planning. The nation will see improved and faster communications as a result, primarily in far-flung areas.

Arianespace, the French service provider, was able to successfully launch two satellites – the Intelsat 39/ Myanmar Sat 2 and EDRS-C, from the Guiana Space Center, Europe’s spaceport in French Guiana, a French territory in South America.
