Beirut-based documentary-makers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige uncover the little known history of Lebanon's space programme. The film traces the remarkable story of how, in a period from 1960-1966, and working on a shoestring budget, a group of scientists and students from the Armenian University in Beirut, led by Manoug Manougian, began developing and launching a series of ever more powerful rockets.
