In Rocket Science, The Payoff Is Often When The Rocket Explodes

...and in this French language clip from the Congo, it comes at the very end.

PS. I don't really know what's going on here, but everyone seems to be having fun.

loosely resumed :

after three months of research troposhere V is ready for take-off

it might be a litle folly, but it's a little joy & dream for the people of Congo

the aim : reaching 36000 metres height at a speed of Mach 3

this launch brings a huge innovation as it launches the first congolese animal (a rat) into space

numurous high-ranked personalities were witness of nthe take-off

at 1:51 : troposhere did not depart in the right direction but the engineers aren't too upset as still it's alittle step forward for their research

After the report ends with stating the rat is still missing, the girl in the TV studio states the scientists don't exclude the possibility next time they"ll launch a sattelite in an orbit around the earth !

It was kind of sweet, actually. Too bad it's in the Congo.
