The deadline is fast approaching for developing and emerging countries to get a chance to reach for the stars.

They are being encouraged to submit proposals for participation in the first-ever space mission that will contribute to global development efforts.

The initiative is the result of a partnership between the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Sierra Nevada Corporation, an American company that supplies the space and aviation industries.

Dianne Penn has the story.
