If the Russians can launch Sputnik, what's to stop a group of Aussie lads putting their own satellite into space? It's the revolutionary sixties and anything seems possible - even hitching a free ride on a NASA rocket. 'The Satellite' is the true story behind Australia's first spacecraft, 'Australis-Oscar 5', and those who sent her into orbit.
* The Satellite has been selected to screen at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, 9 July 2017 and won't be publicly viewable until 16 July. In the meantime, please contact us for the password should you wish to view it privately.
