Ground control to Chandrayaan

Jantar Mantar Observatory, in Jaipurvia, Rajasthan, India. Built in 1728. PlanetWare (more...)

NEW DELHI — India launched its first unmanned spacecraft to orbit the moon early Wednesday, part of an effort to assert its power in space and claim some of the business opportunities there.

This is good boost and a less controversial rocket show for the nationalists in India, when in fact, they were looking and charting the galaxy and beyond since way back...

Presently they say they are looking for Helium 3, a light, non-radioactive isotope of helium and a potential replacement for fossil fuel.

With this, the Asian Space Race is officially on.

Of course all this after we did the real Lego work and still keep it ahead of everybody else...

Chandrayaan-1, mission control..LIVE..
