I was wondering...if GAGAN can provide 7.6m accuracy... http://www.oosa.unvienna.org/pdf/icg/2008/expert/2-3.pdf ..then we have the technology for accuracy up to that resolution right ? So why is the IRNSS still restricted to 18m....have they already frozen the design or is the technology of the 2 p...

This means the ISRO lander would soft land, deploy the russian rover, deploy the lander's robotic arm, scoop a sample and launch the canister towards the orbiter. The orbiter would then attempt a reentry with the sample. I was just wondering about the rendezvous of the canister with the orbiter. Wo...

Re: Chandrayan-1 moon mission

It seems improbable that ISRO would have allowed a free ride to instruments like the M3 without getting hands on the "legends/maps" etc to interpret the data...that would be most unfair ! ...helium could sneak right past our noses without we being aware !
