  • Description

    President de Gaulle today decorated French space scientists and other members of the team who have been working on the Diamant rocket project. France became the world's third space power last November when the eighteen-ton, three-stage Diamant rocket was used to launch a test satellite into orbit from the Sahara base at Hammaguir.

    Today, at a ceremony in the gardens of the Elysee Palace, President de Gaulle presented his awards to the rocket team, among them the project director, General Sauflet.
