India Launches Its First Lunar Probe october-22-2008

On October 22 2008, India launched its first mission to moon named Chandrayaan-I using PSLV C-11 which took off from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota.

Once Chandrayaan-1 enters lunar orbit, Indian Space Research Organization would become the 6th space agency to have successfully sent a probe to the moon after USA, USSR/Russia, ESA, Japan and China.

Many speculate that this launch will trigger an Asian Space Race between China and India.
