Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion - Sept 2016

^ Prasanna, do you know if there's a good chance that the Chandrayaan-2 moon mission will be launched in April, or with the delays in the other launches, is it more likely for November( which is the next date that a moon mission will be more efficient). Is the April launch off for now? IMO Launch w...

Even if the HSF program is sanctioned today, work on the Space Station cant be taken up for the next 15-20 years. There is a lot of technologies (like docking, EVA etc ) that need to be proven before a Space Stati...

What happened in that span, to announce the revised January launch? They were basically saying, ...
