Space Flight Before Sputnik !?
Wikipedia states Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin "became the first human to journey into outer space..." Well, they obviously did not know or hear of "Wan Hu" or "Michel Ardan", who are notorious known for their earlier voyages into space and to the Moon!
Join us for an insightful account of their historical escapades and ingenious devices that brought them to the Moon many many years before Apollo 11.
The presentation will be broadcasted on TAWBAS's YouTube Channel
