    That's a cool idea and 500 R is very minimal. it'd be nice if you could pay to send pictures of your family or meaningful things on something like a micro SD card too or a for more money or auctioned a micro engraved image. I'd love to sponsor aN image of Lord Shiva and my parents and grandparents name to be placed there.

    Our guys along with japanese are probably going to be last of the teams to reach moon, as both are scheduled to go onboard GSLV launch in Dec. The last date of this competition is Dec 31st..

    Why even stuck the "nauts" there. Vyomagami would have been better.
