From Trivandrum to the Moon!

Today morning, Chandrayaan I was
launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, marking yet another step, albeit a giant one, for India's space programme which started from Trivandrum decades ago.

The PSLV which launched Chandrayaan I was built at our own Vikram Sarabhai Space Center, as was most of the spacecraft itself including the crucial Moon Impactor Probe.

Hats off to all the scientists and engineers who made this possible and a great day for all of us, a day for us to hold our heads a little higher because we belong to Space City, India!


  1. This is a great achievement.
    Hats off to ISRO.


  2. This is a wonderful moment for Kerala and India :-)
    Hats off to ISRO!
    Proud to be Indian! (and a mallu)

  3. This mission reflects the excellent scientific capabilities Indians have acquired in being able to explore the space with our own science. While we Indians have proved our capabilities in space mission and in the manufacture of computer chips, our notorious neighbor is still unable to produce anything beyond potato chips and terrorism.

    Mr. Ahmed Ali (an Arab national), General Manager of Al Watan group of news papers in his article titled INDIAN SPACE PROWESS had said – “In recognition of its scientific achievements, we have to change the way we think of India and Indians and start dealing with them accordingly because they belong to a great nation that has carried its flag into the space. After India succeeding in launching Chandrayaan, we have to treat simple Indian labourers with great respect because they deserve it”

    Proud to be an Indian !!!!!
