From the Editor-in-Chief

Application of scientific knowledge in attendance to societal needs signaled the commencement of human journey of civilization. In other words, a strong, dynamic and sustainable basic research enterprise is a foundation for progress. For societal goals like economic growth and development, strong national dense, healthy populace and environment to become realizable, other scientific discoveries and innovations must be translated into products, goods and services for the end users…

Aims and Objectives

NJSR serves as a medium or channel for the publication/dissemination of the works, findings and discoveries of researchers in Nigeria and other parts of the world in various areas of space science. Currently, NJSR is the only such important publication medium in Nigeria. Scientists/researchers themselves, during the workshop organized by NASRDA-CBSS in July 2004, identified the urgent need to have this journal. The Journal publishes original papers, editorials, news, conferences and career/professional information that are relevant to space Scientists/Researchers in Africa and the world.
