India joined the elite club of United States, former Soviet Union, European Space Agency, China and Japan, by the success of her Chandrayaan Mission.Carrying aloft the lunar orbiter Chandrayaan, the rocket, Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV C11) lifted off from the second launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre , Sriharikota (Andhra Pradesh), and broke through the scudding cloud cover at 6.22 a.m., exactly on schedule.

Once the 1,380-kg Chandrayaan gets near the moon its speed will be reduced to enable the gravity of the moon to capture it into an elliptical orbit. Chandrayaan will orbit the moon for two years. It carries 11 experimental payloads, five Indian and six from the European Space Agency (3), the US (2) and Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (1).

Hearty Congratulations to the Indian Scientists for their dedicated work for the great mission to moon
