Yugoslav space program – Trailer for upcoming documentary about Yugoslavian space program and it’s importance in USA space race. Yugoslavian space program was based on works of, Austro-Hungarian of Slovene ethnicity, rocket engineer Herman Potočnik (pseudonym Hermann Noordung). Too bad but communist marshal Tito sold Yugoslavian space program to Amerikansky, just for some US dollar’s.
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.
Herman Potočnik was a true slavic scientist like Nikola Tesla and Potočnik’s work laid foundation for “space science”. Sadly so few people know that. Instead Wernher von Braun got all that attention.
