Chandrayan I

Chandrayan....Sounds like a good name, logical, mythological.... but will it fly ?. I am not concerned about the talent of the scientists, but I am pretty skeptical about the other guys called politicians who run the show. Looks like two american instruments are gonna hitch a ride atop this expedition.

You know for someone who has first hand experience in BEL labs (India), not the american BELL, I can say that there is enough expertise to send people to the moon, except the people are stymied in so many ways. Here's to hoping that there is more opportunity and the Indian dream is no different from the American dream.
