Interesting report/interview on the BBC about how students in early 1960's Lebanon got as far as launching rockets to the edge of space.

"My vision was to explore space - Lebanon could have done that."

Manoug Manougian's boast may sound unlikely, but 50 years ago he and a group of students found themselves as space pioneers of the Arab world. Despite a shoestring budget, they developed a rocket capable of reaching the edge of space.
