Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion

lets not go overboard with historical astronomy (and My Grandfather used to do pretty precise calculations for his work manually based on ancient texts)- of course they did a wonderful work for their time and are to be lauded and not forgotten but current data is based on recent work and the level ...

Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion

Can not a PSLV/GSLV be used as an ICBM with 10,000KM+ range? Why don't we have such long range missiles when the rockets with such range exist?

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

Can anyone explain to me why we are still stuck on Brahmos missile <300KM range(Which i know comes from International limitations). We are spending efforts to put it on ships and even a Su-30. Why not have a missile like Nirbhay with 1000KM+ range be used? Is it cost or anything that I am missing?

Some similar theories spoke of patents filed by Freescale employees few days before this omnious flight. On Email...

Re: Intelligence and National Security Discussion

For the unfortunate murders of Intelligence people, doesn't the RAW/IB conduct their own investigation(may be not made public). It could also be a staged murder by the agency to prevent double agents?May be watching too much Spooks and such

How is the tracking done?

Sirs, Can some one explain how the MOM is tracked enroute to Mars without any GPS with such precision?Can a star tracker do this?Wouldn't dust/meteor/asteroid/bright light from a star explosion make it difficult to use?
