Chandrayaan-1 : Probe lands on moon

The perfect children's day gift by ISRO

The mission has been accomplished, without any hiccups. We are there, the dreams are closer as impact probe being taken by Chandrayaan -1, India's first moon mission lands on moon. Its a proud moment for all Indians and takes us into the next lap of space race. The idea of putting a flag of India on the probe was an excellent idea given by a prominent scientist and former president of India, Dr A P J Abdul Kalam. The timing of the mission has been immaculate too. The probe has landed when India celebrates children's day, the birthday of the first prime minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It is time to celebrate and finally we get to see some positive news on TV after all the ATS, Raj Thackeray, crap.
