Bolivia’s first China-made satellite is making money

Bolivia’s Chinese-made Tupac Katari satellite has generated 16 million U.S. dollars of income in a little more than a year in orbit. That’s according to the Bolivian Space Agency on Tuesday.
The country’s first satellite, named after a historical figure, was launched on Dec. 20, 2013 from China’s Xichang Satellite Launch Center.
The China Great Wall Industry Corporation built the satellite at an estimated cost of 300 million dollars.
