Tricolour on the moon soon

On Oct 22, 2008 at 06:22 am IST we became only the fourth nation in the world to launch a moon mission. Chandrayaan-I is an unmanned mission to the moon that will also plant the tricolour on the lunar surface when it lands there in about 2 years. This is significant as we beat China who has only launched an orbiting mission so far.
ISRO scientists have made India proud and well deserved kudos are pouring from all over the world. Cheers to them and India!
