ISRO to launch a man in space by 2015
I think India should put its attention on putting a man in orbit with its own launch vehicle by the year 2015.
If the USSR could do it 44 years ago in Vostok-1 and the Chinese did it only recently surely it is time for the worlds largest democrcacy which already has an advanced launcher program to put a pressurized capsule in orbit for about 24 hours with reentry capabilites for either a hard landing or a splashdown somewhere in the Indian ocean.
The spacecraft itself just needs to consist of a service module and a reentry capsule.
It would be fantastic for Indian national pride and boost the interest of Indian students in science courses in university. 10 years is a long time.
Inida can do it. If india does not accomplish this it will mean that India has yeilded to US attempts to stunt the growth of Indian technological advancements.
India should put a man in orbit in an Indian spacecraft by 2015!
