Choice rather than chance gives direction to development, growth and progress. Nigeria choice to be in space is a welcome development. Communication and Observatory satellites have been successfully launched into space by the most populous nation in Africa. NigComSat-1R, a replacement of NigComSat-1, was put in space in December 2011 to provide wide range of services, not only for Nigerians at affordable prices, but for Africa continent at large. Before the euphoria concomitant with this launching wane, what should be the next line of action for the giant of Africa? When will the next space vehicle build fully by Nigerians, launch right in Nigeria soil, be in space? This paper looks into the efforts so far made and pointed out what next should be done. The physics of space science needs to be further studied, if accurate results in spacecraft launching and positioning are to be procured always. Also, we developed a dynamic class library for thirteen Satellite models using Microsoft Visual Studio, 2010. The robust functionalities of our server were tested and compared with previous works, and found to work to specifications. Developers will find our dynamic server indispensable in swiftly developing accurate satellite applications.
