India on the moon – Chandrayaan-1 Successful

Chandrayaan-1, India’s maiden moon spacecraft, launched successfully from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre today at 6AM. Over the next two weeks, the spacecraft would reach its desired Lunar orbit and placed at a height of 100 km from the Lunar surface. This would enable India to join the small elite club of 6 countries having achieved this feat on the moon. Chandrayaan-1 is carrying 11 instruments, five entirely designed and developed in our country, three from European Space Agency, one from Bulgaria and two from US.

Congratulations and salutations to all the scientists and everyone who is involved in this history creating achievement for India. You are the real heroes of our country.
