    I don't think ISRO has done any mission which was useless and just for pride .
    Every mission helps us to develop and test some critical technology . Till now every mission is a step forward and useful .

    This is one point I never understood. We sure had a lot of people who did not have access to food in the 1980's but is that still a problem now? IMO most of the problem we face are because of a difference in diet which gets measured as stunted growth in most surveys rather than lack of food.
    Yes there are some pockets of tribal areas and sections in drought hit areas that suffer from this, but painting India itself as having chronic hunger is stretching it far.
    Try to remember when was the last time you saw beggars at your doorstep asking for food.

    I think we must take this discussion out of ISRO section.
    @sayareakd can you help?

    Plan is two-pronged and satellites can range from 10 kg ‘micros’ to 300 kg-500 kg ‘minis’


    Nano satellites

    Vyoma which means Space or Sky in Sanskrit.

    naut means a voyager (A long journey to a foreign or distant place).

    We have hunger problem because we can't stop wastage of our surplus production and our pds system has leakages.
    It has nothing to do with space program.

    We need 1 trillion $$ for infra development.
    Our space budget is peanuts .

    Malnutrition is a problem but solution to that again comes from research I.e. Fortified foods.

    Poverty ends when nation create wealth.
    To generate wealth it needs to be ahead in cutting edge technologies and that is exactly what isro is doing.

    West will cry because now we are competing with them taking away their high paying jobs .

    They can no longer justify their 100000$ plus salaries when Indian engineers scientists can deliver better at much less.
    Hence the butt hurt

    We need to march ahead in tech , space and defense without giving a damn.
    As for as BBC and Al-Jazeera is concerned we need to launch new global channels and put them out of business too:india:

    ISRO looking at putting a Telescope on Moon
    Space agency is expecting the second moon mission to take place by the end of next year

    The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is exploring possibilities of setting up a telescope on moon as part of enhancing its scientific observation capacity. The space agency is expecting the second moon mission to take place by the end of next year, said A S Kiran Kumar, chairman of the Isro.

    The agency is looking at what could be the next Astrosat-follow on mission. Speaking to the students of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, he said, "There is some discussion with an international body, and this discussion is in progress, on whether we can set up a telescope on moon."

    At present, in Hanle, in Leh, Ladakh, there is a remote telescope operational, and its actual operation is done from Bengaluru with very minimal support from Hanle. The Isro is exploring that if it can set up a telescope in moon in the same way, there would not be any atmosphetic effect since there is no atmosphere, which is an advantage.


    "These are under discussion and may be in future we will come up with what kind of scientific observation capability we will have for ourselves," he added.

    India launched its first dedicated multi wave length space observatory Astrosat in September, 2015, for studies related to black holes and neutron stars.

    He added that various tests related to Chandrayan 2 mission is under progress and it is expected to take place by the end of next year, while another planetary mission Aditya to study Sun is expected in 2018.

    For Chandrayan 2, tests on controls over the lander and rover while landing on moon are to be tested by the end of this year and the early next year. Many of the activities are supported by student groups.

    It will be conducting a maneuvering of the Mars Orbitor so that it can sustain an eclipse and without the maneuvering, the battery of the orbitor cannot sustain the duration of eclipse. The orbitor still has 35 kg of fuel in it and can go on for longer term once it successfully pass the eclipse challenge.

    The semi cryogenic engine, which would help the space vehicles to carry more payload is under development with the support of an international agency and would be ready in two years. There is a roadmap enhancing the capabilities of the Isro to carry upto 10 tonnes of payload in future, he said.

    However, he said, there is more demand for small capacity vehicles, for commercial purposes where companies want to put constellation of small satellites and replace them frequently.

    He added that with the private sector taking on the national agencies in the space exploration, the challenge for the Isro is to keep on innovating and changing in the forefront of the space activities. The agency is already engaged with academies and students for this and it has around 150-200 students doing internship in each of its centres.

    We have dedicated threads for Moon Exploration and space telescopes.
    I'm putting your post link there.;)

    Why GSLV Mark III’s Success Is Really Important

    SNAPSHOT
    While success stories keep emanating from ISRO, space science enthusiasts have been wondering when India’s space agency will no longer need rockets of the European Space Agency to launch heavy satellites?

    It is a monumental challenge to put a satellite on top of the earth’s equator, making it move with a velocity equal to that of our planet’s rotation.

    Mods should just shift these discussions to social reform thread. Lets keep this thread for technical purpose only.

    Isro's mission to Mars: Intergalactic travel not far away, says Mangalyaan deputy director

    Whatever maybe the challenges, human beings are likely to journey to Mars in the 2030s. The Red Planet’s average distance from the earth is 225 million kilometres and India sent forth its own spacecraft Mangalyaan which is presently orbiting the Martian atmosphere and sending back information regarding Mars surface features, morphology, mineralogy and of course the Martian atmosphere which does not have an ozone layer to protect human beings from ultraviolet radiation.

    But Ritu Karidhal, one of the speakers at 'Josh Talk' and deputy director of ISRO’s Mangalyaan programme believes this interplanetary mission will open the door for further significant space explorations including sending human beings to Mars. Karidhal said, "I believe Nasa is working on sending astronauts to [R1] Mars and they have made progress in this field. I believe they will be able to reach there in the 2030s.
