1. ISRO takes first step in Mission Mars
The who’s who of the scientist community will debate on this, G. Madhavan Nair, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation, told Hindustan Times. 'There’s a lot of interest in Mars. We will call the scientists (for a debate) and invite proposals for participation in the project,' he said.
The timeframe for this mission to Mars is 2012, the end of the 11th Plan period. The budget about Rs 250 crore includes the spacecraft and the rocket.
In addition to new details, space scientists are confident that a Mars mission will stir up research interest in astrophysics and astronomy in the country. The technological spin-offs would benefit the sectors of aerospace technology, communications and medicine.
