Increasingly the earth’s space becomes more and more cramped with little room to breathe. It forced an ordinary man who works as a farmer in Palestine to look for a solution.He struck on an idea. This idea is the establishment of the Palestinian Space Agency. His solution is to go up into space where not only will there be more open space but also maybe we meet with the one God which is there for everybody.

The concept began quietly with a name, then stickers and a company was formed which now includes its own vehicle: The Shuttle AMMAN1 - the first Palestinan space satellite.

We are more or less ready to make the launch. A few more details and we are confident that everything will float smoothly into the air.
