Chile puede

Chile puede (Spanish for: Chile can do it) is a 2008 Chilean science fiction comedy film about an illegal private Chilean space venture orchestrated by a mad tycoon that comes under the suspicions of the United States government, as an Arab and Al-Qaeda motivated anthrax-filled-satellite attack on the United States.


A group of scientists is working in the north of Chile, preparing for the first Chilean space mission. However, just before the launch, an industrial dispute breaks out between the scientists and engineers over wages and working conditions. They walk out of the ground control center, leaving the project director to launch the mission with astronaut Guillermo.
