Yugoslav Space Program

This is a gem:

The cold war, the space race, and NASA’s moon landing are landmark events that defined an era. But they are also fodder for conspiracy theories.

In Houston, We Have a Problem! filmmaker Žiga Virc adds new material to the discussion on both fronts. This intriguing docu-fiction explores the myth of the secret multi-billion-dollar deal behind America’s purchase of Yugoslavia’s clandestine space program in the early 1960s.

The film is on YouTube, but with no subtitles for the non-English sections. Maybe it can be accessed somewhere else. I saw it when it was released, but it came up in a conversation yesterday, so I’m bringing it up here.


Yes, not to spoil the fun - this film is a good reminder of the persuasive powers of media.
