BBC has produced a film called "The Spaceman of Afghanistan". Ahad Momand, Afghanistan's one and only astronaut, went into space in 1988 where he spent a week on the Russian space station Mir. Momand fled Afghanistan's civil war and went to Germany to live. A little piece of unknown Afghan history is presented in this 60 minute documentary. It is available on the BBC website at this link; however, you can only view it on BBC's site if you are in the UK. It has been uploaded to YouTube at this link.
