Indian Flag on the Moon

Rediff.com, news report, Posted: Nov 15, 2008

India is over the moon now that it's on it, reports Rediff.com. The Indian flag has been planted on the lunar landscape on Friday night. India now joins the United States and Russia in having its national flag planted on the moon. "India can achieve anything. It sure is a proud moment for us," said Madhavan Nair, Indian Space Research Organization chief, with tears in his eyes. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former President of India whose idea it was to plant the Indian flag on the moon, was seen punching his fist in happiness and commented that now India had its flag on both the moon and Mt. Everest. The Lunar Impact Probe launched by the Chandrayaan spacecraft planted the tricolor flag before disintegrating on impact. Chandrayaan was launched on Nov 8.
