Rocket In The Jungle
Why does French Guyana not benefit from its space station?
The space sector is the most most dominant industry in French Guyana. Yet its residents rarely reap the rewards.
Deep in the Amazon rain forest space rockets are breaking the silence. The satellite launch business here is booming, serving clients from all over the world. But native Guianans are fed-up with not getting the jobs that the industry creates. A fascinating report that looks at the history of French Guiana, as well as the positive and negative effects of the space industry on French Guiana's people and environment.FULL SYNOPSIS
