Zambian in Space

The Zambia National Academy of Space Research is not perhaps as well known as NASA. It’s failure to put anyone on the moon, entirely down to the United Nations refusal to lend them $700 million and the pregnancy of it’s one and only potential cosmonaut.

Cristina De Middel attempts to make more of us aware of the whole subject of African space travel with her retro series based on the failed Zambian space program of the mid sixties.

The pictures are some of the more memorable I’ve seen recently but then with a subject like that how could you possibly fail.
