India plans to probe the moon



The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) plans to send a probe called called Chandrayan I to the moon early this year. Don't have the details but I guess they are going to do it just to show they can.

The successful launch of an Israeli spy satellite has enhanced it's reputation (and of course made it richer) in the global satellite launching market - putting India in a small elite group of nations.

The 300 kg TECSAR satellite was carried by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). For more info, read India launches Israeli 'spy satellite'.

Yet another country is spending billions to explore space instead of spending the money where it needs to be spent; at home! We have pollution, hungrey people, and violence in many streets; yet traveling to the moon is more important. I don't get it!

I forgot to mention that ISRO reportedly received $14 million for the launch and have signed up 3 more launch customers. Yes! satellite launching is big business.
