Chandrayan-1 has been launched as a part of India’s first lunar orbital voyage. The Indian Space Research Organisation, ISRO wants India to stamp its authority in the world of Space by hoisting the national flag on the Moon. With this, India would become the fourth nation after the US, Russia and Japan to have their national flags planted on the Moon. The Moon is a part of the global community and there are no restrictions on such actions. The Indian mission to the Moon would also look for Helium-3 — looked upon as the fuel for the future. The ISRO has its sight set on Mars after the success of the mission to Moon.
