"and when he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of Heaven so fine that all the World will be in love with night, And pay no worship to the garish sun" William Shakespeare
On February 20, 1962, at 0948, all the World, including the people
of Cuba stood in awe, as a Mercury Atlas rocket lifted Friendship 7 off
from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying U.S. Lt. Colonel John H. Glenn, Jr. into
orbit encircling the Earth for 4 hours and 56 minutes...traveling over 80,000
miles at a speed of 17, 500 miles per hour. USA relations with Cuba were
near a historical low. We believe by the year 2062, Cuba and the USA will
be "good friends" again and likely cooperating in many endeavors, including
the exploration of space.
The mission of our non-political website, www.spacecuba.com, is to be a launch pad to seek common ground between the people of Cuba and the people of the USA in space exploration and research, especially areas that mutually benefit the USA and Cuba. Satellite imagery of Cuba is used to (1) track hurricanes in the Caribbean that may pass over Cuba and threaten the continental USA, (2) changes of the marine environment, (3) fires in Cuba, and many other purposes. We look forward to the day when Cuba and the USA can resolve their political differences and work together, as they have historically, in scientific endeavors, including the exploration of Space.
