Indian Space Rocket Blasts Off

Recommended Posts

Brazil, India, and Iran. Then you got Argentina, and Syria. Then Venezuela, Iran, Cuba. A very nice tangled web that Latin America is weaving.








An Indian space rocket blasted off today in the country's first bid to carry two satellites in a single launch, part of its ambitious space program that aims to send a probe to the moon.


The launch of the two satellites from the Satish Dhawan space port near Madras, on India's south-east coast, will help map makers and amateur radio operators, space officials said.



The 44-metre Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle lifted off carrying a remote sensing satellite with precise imaging aimed at putting every Indian household on the map and one for home radio operators.
