India Is Getting Serious
I am pleased to see another nation preparing to launch a manned space-flight. When I was growing up India was a backwards nation of poverty and hunger and now this nation, which has largely - - though not entirely -- rejected socialism, is a technically advanced and growing power and it did properly. It improved itself rather than try to bring the big man down to its own level which is how so many nations tried to do it.
It will be a few years and India has a lot to do, but let's watch to see India launch its first manned flight soon.
The capsule is a typical three man vehicle launched by rocket and recover by parachute as every other nation has used.
