    Default Moonstruck - India Makes History


    India became the fourth country on Earth to land a probe on the moon, when its first unmanned lunar spacecraft Chandrayaan-1 sent down the Moon Impact Probe (MIP) painted in the Indian tricolour.

    The 34 kg probe instrument was hurled from an altitude of 100 kms. onto the lunar surface. It reached on the Moon's surface at 8:31pm IST (Friday, November 14, 2008 - today). It is a proud moment for all of us. The Indian tricolour is painted on all sides of the Moon Impact Probe which is attached to the main orbiting spacecraft, Chandrayaan-1. It was launched from Earth on October 22, 2008.

    I don't know about you guys, but I have been following the developments very closely and feel really proud that finally the mission has been a success.

    P.S:
    The Indian tricolour had been hoisted on Mount Everest and Antarctica. And now it is on the moon.

    P.P.S:
    This topic is obviously not connected to motorycles/motorcycling in ANY way but I totally believe that this is a moment to celebrate and hence this thread.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all of us and to the whole team of Chandrayan-1!

    yea man.. totally agree with u, Actually the Media was covering Raj Thackeray's bullshit on the time of the launch of the Probe(?).. so not many of us are really aware of this, anyways.. IT IS ACTUALLY A PROUD MOMENT FOR US INDIANS.

    P.S.: already dreaming of moon G2G ..

    I guess most of us have been following the event. It is a great milestone in the history of India and really a proud moment. Jai Hind! Mera Bharat Mahaan!

    PS: Aryan, who knows, in future we may be riding two wheels on moon. Hope I will be riding the upgraded Karizma on the moon. Hope HH will release the upgraded Zma by that time.

    I am proud of the fact that our chandrayaan mission was open to everyone. It is there for everyone to see, not like the Chinese which keeps its space program a total secret and on top of that some chinese buggers were doubting our moon mission and calling it a flop.

    I hope we carry out many more missions in the future.
