Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion

If the idea is to have a word derived from an Indian language, then I hope they avoid any word ending in -naut. I think any word which limits the meaning to atmosphere should also be avoided. The word should also be easy to pronounce and not too long. If I had a better knowledge of Sanskrit, I would...

Thanks Shiv and Neerajb for your lucid explanation. I now understand very well what induced drag is.
