English to Portuguese: Article about Africa's role in NASA's moon landing
Source text - English Project Mercury vetted seven astronauts known as the “Mercury 7″ and ultimately completed several orbital flights in the early 1960s: 20 unmanned, including the Mercury-Atlas-4, two with chimpanzees onboard (“Ham” and “Enos”), and six manned orbits including MA-6 through MA-9) — proving that human space travel was possible.
In 1960, NASA constructed the satellite tracking space station in Tunguu, Zanzibar, just under 10 miles outside of Stone Town, the capital. The following year, they completed the last of 18 stations in Kano, Nigeria, each at an estimated cost of $3 million.

Em 1960, a NASA construiu uma estação de rastreamento de satélites em Tunguu, em Zanzibar, a pouco menos de 16 quilômetros de distância da Cidade de Pedra, a capital. No ano seguinte, concluíram em Kano, na Nigéria, a última das 18 estações do projeto, cada uma com um custo aproximado de US$ 3 milhões.
