The Lebanese Rocket Society

18 Oct 201324 Oct 2013

In 1960 a group of Lebanese students began building small experimental rockets that would soon become the basis of the first Arab space programme. Using hitherto lost footage, rare photographs and interviews, Hadjithomas and Joreige’s fascinating documentary pieces together their considerable, if sometimes blunder-prone, achievements.
