India’s Moon Mission


India has announced that it plans to explore the Moon and will send an unmanned probe there by 2008.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) calls the Moon flight project Chandrayan Pratham, which has been translated as First Journey to the Moon or Moonshot One.

The 1,157-lb. Chandrayan-1 would be launched in 2007 or 2008 on one of India’s own Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) space rockets.

    YES. A successful manned mission to moon will give India the status of a super-power with technological capability on par with the United States, Russia, European Space Agency (ESA), China (in manned mission to space), development of new types of materials and breakthrough in medicine and life sciences, communications…

    no offense and I do not mean to sound ill mannered but why is India doing this just now? Our country did this YEARS ago, but then again, I can understand India wanting to do their own thing, India has some very competent scientist’s and who knows, maybe they will discover unchartered things, I wish India the best of luck on this venture, I’m actually kind of excited for them 🙂

    No.!!!!! Definitely not. Is this really needed? Do you know how much it costs for this? And what’s the use? Is this that no one has ever done before? Instead, why don’t they do some more research and try to do innovative things. Why waste billions of rupees on what has already been achieved? Instead, put this money to a wise use. It’s like we want to re-discover Newton’s theory or that there are 8 planets in the solar system???

    No we won’t accept. We will try to invent fire again from the start. huh!
