Congratulations are in order to the nation of India for their space mission
(Chandrayaan-1) orbiting the moon that today dropped a probe onto the surface.
It took 25-minutes to fall and is the first Indian-built object to reach the
surface. That is a cool achievement very few nations have attained! Another
great step in opening up space to all of Mankind.
"Indian Space Research Organization" - photos and reports
The announcement came out of the Indian Space Research Organization in
Bangalore. There are some interesting photographs on the ISRO website. The
Chandrayaan-1 satellite, with ten additional payloads of a kind different from
the one dropped, will remain in orbit mapping the terrain.
A job well done!
(It is unknown whether Python was running onboard ;-)
