    "Houston, we have a problem!" (Yugoslavian space program) trailer

    The release of a Slovenian documentary, Houston We Have a Problem, alleges a new twist to the the Cold War: American bought a secret Yugoslav space programme to put it in space.
    The posting of a documentary trailer by user YugoslavianSpace on January 9, 2012 is offering a rather unusual twist to the Cold War story, more than fifty years after America announced its intention to go to the Moon in May, 1961.
    The trailer claims that the full documentary, entitled Houston, We Have a Problem – to be released later this year – will show that the CIA discovered a secret Yugoslav space programme in 1960 and, behind in the space race with the Soviet Union, they bought the entire programme from Yugoslav President Tito in March, 1961, just two months before President John F Kennedy announced America's lunar ambitions.
    According to the documentary, the origins of the Yugoslav space programme lay in the writings and work of Herman Potocnik, whose 1929 book Problem Voznje po Vesolju (The Problem of Space Travel) inspired former Nazi and architect of the American space program Wernher von Braun.
    What America did not get their hands on were other writings and drawings by Potocnik, and these were found by Tito's secret service in 1947, and they played an important part in the Yugoslav space programme, which was started in 1948.
    Living standards in Yugoslavia improved considerably, and the socialist country enjoyed rapid economic development with generous American financial aid.
    The trailer claims the documentary will reveal how tito built the biggest secret underground space centre in Europe, and that in fact some of the American rockets were made in Yugoslavia, and that Tito and his wife were regular visitors at NASA's facilities. The base is at Zeljava on the Croatian-Bosnian border, also known as Army Base 505.
    The authors of the documentary are Boštjan i Žiga Virc, and the full story will only be revealed with the full documentary, but the trailer is available below.

    How Tito envisioned this –

    Anyway, I think the key to the Yugoslav space program is in the Bosnian pyramids.

    Problem is that Yugoslavia officialy didnt have Space Agency thats why i have some doubt's. Also the guy that made this trailer is known for making comedies thats why i am suspicious.

    The film is a work of fiction and shouldn't be taken seriously. ;) A space program requires massive resources and that was something Yugoslavia didn't have. It spent money mostly on arms industry and massive underground bunkers preparing for a possible total war. Most of Yugoslavia's economic growth was debt-based that depended on the goodwill of the West. To think they actually had resources to start a space program and complete it only to sell it to the USA is quite ridiculous to be frank.

    I think some of the footage they're showing up is from that airplane base on boarder between Croatia/Bosnia (can't remember the name this second) and they're making it look as it's space launching central or something in documentary ;D thought it did look modern even for todays standards.

    Yugoslavia couldn't make some less complex thing to space program, so this is just stupid to believe there was ever Yugoslav space program. Perhaps the idea existed, but that's it  ;D

    Its not about Yugoslavia but supposed secret Potočnik's books. And not doubting something right away isn't stupid.

    Look, I ain't talking about Potocnik or his work. I'm talking about Yugoslavia, since as far as I could get the movie is Yugoslav secret space program. I guarantee you there was no such thing. They couldn't even make helicopter so they bought French "gazelle" patent. Similar with older versions of Zastava cars

    Trailer mostly tries to say that Tito sold some kind of secret Potočnik's book to USA and Yugoslavia got lots of money in return. But the whole trailer gives distorted information since they also mention Yugoslav Space program which didn't exist. This fact + the fact that the guy who made this trailer is well known major troll is fairly sufficient proof that this is probably all fake but still just because some believe this it doesn't mean they are stupid. That is what i meant. :)

    Ok, then switch "stupid" for "naive"  ;)

    So you think that black men don't belong in space?

    Does your Slovenian racism know no boundaries?  :-
