India's giant leap over China in moon race

Targets 2015 landing date, two years before Himalayan neighbour

SRIHARIKOTA: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is confident of sending the first Indian to the moon by 2015. If successful, it would beat the Chinese in the moon race as that country plans to send its first astronaut by 2017.

India’s premier space agency has already begun forming teams for the manned moon mission. MC Dathan, Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC), Sriharikota, said they have already decided to use the third upgraded launchpad at SDSC to send Indian astronauts to the moon in a “human spacecraft” that will be carried by an advanced version of the geo-stational satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) rocket.

He explained that the spacecraft carrying the astronauts is planned to have an escape system to enable them to bail out in case of an emergency even after launch.

“We are already forming teams to prepare for the launch of the manned mission,” Dathan told a visiting media team from Bangalore. The mission will be included in the Chandrayaan series and is expected to cost over Rs10,000 crore. ISRO scientists say the high mission cost is due to several safety aspects to be put in place, apart from an array of life support systems to help astronauts travel to and from the moon safely.

The minute details of the mission will be worked out by teams in the process of being formed.

The feasibility report for India’s manned moon mission is already with the Centre. ISRO now awaits the Centre’s approval to get into full gear to launch the mission.

It should'nt be very difficult for them to send a man to space because they have an advanced space program but the moon is another challendge. However i definetly do not discount them as incapable of travelling to the monn

they could in theory skip steps. i know China skipped the telephone wiring stage and went straight for wireless. developing countries have that advantage as they can skip steps.

well there are certain steps that can not be skip.

At the very least they have to make sure a man can survie inside a space craft for 1 week in orbit.

They havent even put a man in space and they talk about putting a man on the moon iby 2015.

They still have time to launch someone to space to met the deadline of 2015 moon landing so they might not skip a step after all. But assuming that they launch a man to space by 2012 that will leave them only 3 years to prepare for the moon. It would be interesting to see how they play it ou over the next decade

It's almost laughable what people get away with saying here in Chinese Chat. Would similarly anti-Chinese "jokes" be tolerated here as well, or would the poster get labeled a "troll" and banned immediately by the mods?

USA and Europe will give the Technology to India for free since they consider Indians to be Aryan descents.

why do the India so focus on beating China?? why not try to beat other country but why alway China?


Because if India sets her goal too high (To beat USA, Europe or Japan) then she might not be able to accomplish the goal but "beating China" would be an easy job for most Indians.

The report seems speculative/bogus, haven't heard it anywhere else. If true, this should have been all over the place here in India. What I did read few days ago was about govt approval for Chandrayaan 2. Manned mission to moon would need huge funds and not to mention before manned mission to moon we need to send astronauts to space first.

India can do it.


It is good to set goals and achieve them. Do not worry about the haters and doubters.

I have no doubt that India can go to the moon if they want to. Last year I read about how India was able to retrieve its space capsule after it orbited earth for like a week or so; so going to the moon is not something that is impossible to think of.

From my personal experience in real life and even on the net, Indian is the most quiestest group of people, they talk less and do more than any groups that I've seen in my life.

As for India getting space tech from the U.S, highly unlikely considering both the U.S and India do not even like each other like people think democractic countries would be, especially India is a nuclear country.

India not engaged in space race with China: ISRO chief

Sun, Oct 12 03:14 PM

Ramnath Shenoy Bangalore, Oct 12 (PTI) As India prepares for its first unmanned mission to the Moon next week, ISRO chief Madhavan Nair has said that New Delhi is not engaged in a space race with Beijing, stating that the priorities of the two countries are different and there is no competition. Chandrayaan-1, the country's first unmanned lunar venture, is slated for launch on October 22 and India has proposed Mars mission in 2013 and a human space flight by 2015.

China undertook a manned orbital flight in 2003 and launched a lunar satellite in October last year. Ahead of Chandrayaan-1, India's most ambitious space venture to date, some analysts have said that it is an attempt to catch up with China and a space race involving the two Asian rivals.

However, ISRO chairman Madhavan Nair, who is also the Secretary in the Department of Space, disagrees with this view. "Our priorities have been in providing the societal services, based on the space assets.

There, we have been concentrating on earth observation and communication areas. Launch vehicles which are appropriate for these missions have been developed.

That's way, we have developed technologies and systems required for national development", he told PTI in an interview. "Now, since we have some breathing time (we can also focus on areas beyond the above mentioned areas), we are now concentrating on planetary explorations and activities which are supposed to be taken up for the next decade.

In that context, we are now taking up the proposals for the manned mission and so on," he said. PTI.

None of Japan's, Korea's, China's, or India's space agencies will annouce that there is a space race because that would cause suspicion among them but in reality there is going to be a major space race between the major powers in Asia
