India Preparing Manned Space Mission

India, in many ways, symbolizes the future of the entire world. Like the United States, it is a populous, diverse democracy, taking on the responsibilities of an emerging superpower. Similarly, the Subcontinent has decided that it will begin to lead in the space race, and will send a man into space.

India's second unmanned lunar mission, Chandrayaan-2, is already scheduled to be launched in 2011.

ISRO has also been lobbying for years to secure government funding for its plans to send an astronaut into space by 2014 - eleven years after China - and to the Moon by 2020, four years ahead of China's target date.

Good for India. Hopefully they are able to make it and land a man on the Moon before China. And hopefully we can get our space program back on track!
