Labour and components for Sunsat (SO-35) cost around 11 million
South African rand (or 2 million USD at the time). The launch was
sponsored by NASA in exchange for payloads that were flown.
For Sumbandila (SO-67) it was 12 million ZAR (1.7 million USD). The
launch was financed by our Department of Science and Technology.
