A New Frontier for India?
It was announced today that India is sending an unmanned lunar satellite into space from the Bay of Bengal. It is part of India´s claim as a world super-power. At the cost of US$80 million, the satellite will be looking for water sources and develop a new three-dimensional atlas of the moon. The project boasts total indigenous technology. A good use of government funds?
