Rakesh Sharma .... moon ?? No other nation has put men on the moon other than the US..
Infact the russians took up ppl from many countries in the friendship space missions.. cuba, Vietnam, France went onboard salyut beofre India and then syria, afghanistan were also sent to space..

Chinas GPS system is already in space while india is still planing.. stealth spy just because india has launched other peoples Satellites. Chinese Space is at least 2 decades infront of india. for gods sake we put a man into space by ourselves.

Rakesh Sharma, an indian, landed on the moon 2 decades back, and put the indian tricolour on the moon.

. We are still waiting for India to launch a person into space,so don't waste your time with these one line "China copy everything" posts.

According to you and some other Indian posters anything that China buys is copied. So,you copied the Su-30MKI when you produce it in India. Rakesh Sharma landed on the moon? My ass! India's space capabilities are far worse than China. China recently became the 3rd country to send a man into space, after the USA and Russia. India is yet to send any # up into space, so much for India's space capabilities being better

that rakesh sharma post of stealth spy is all wrong.. he's forgotten to edit it..
As I posted in the Brahmos thread India is actually supp to integrate its GPS with GLONASS and not purely concentrate on its own GPS..
Thats why the chinese went for beidou..
India could have put a man in space if they wanted too..
So could have Japan/Europe..Hell even Canada's pretty advanced in spaceflight
But they don't see it as uneconomical and hence have stuck to an unmanned launch program..
Besides they have the US and /or Russian launch vehicles for manned space flight..

Tell me chinawhite..
What benefit (military/economic) does an "independant" manned program have
besides "pride" ??
The chinese are in no way associated with the ISS, NASA or Russian space initiatives while India has been closing cooperating with Russia w.r.t. space and has recently signed numerous civ nuke/space joint ventures with the US..
The US values Indian expertise in space.
( 25% of NASA scientists are of Indian origin and they don't go stealing secrets!!

And has invited India to participate in the ISS..
All this recently after the nuke sanctions were lifted..
India's slated to send lunar orbiters and perhaaps even luna type landers to the moon by 2008..
Japan has orbiters around the moon already..
One can say they got there before China!

It doesn't work like that though..
Japan/Europe are ahead of China in Space.. they don't NEED an INDEPEDANT manned program...
They use US/ Russian launch vehicles to send their astronauts to space..
Same with India..

China needs to get with the international space program or it will lag behind by eons in no time..
Co-operation is the future space tech/development/exploration...
w/o it china will still be sending its first man to the moon when the others
(US/Russia/EU/India) have a co-op manned base there!!

the chinese space program is closely linked with the russian space agency.
name a few joint space programs with america. Any edvidence??

and about 25% indian .. the word we use is link proof.

indian on the moon by 2008 proof edvidence. maybe a aspiration. it takes years to plan then develop the equipment needed.

yup india is very important to ISS.... NOT.. what are thy going to provide???
big one money but america already has more

Oh... put a lid on it!!


And btw the workforce that is of Indian Origin in NASA is at around 10% by pessimistic estimates and 15% by optimistic estimates.
Not 25% like I'd mentioned before but still the single largest foreign ethnicity by far.

No RAkesh Sharma's on the moon(or in space) until the ISS is all done at least(2010).

Its alittle strange that all the countries on earth use the US controlled GPS system. The US is still able to degrade that signal to anyone besides the US military or just turn it off if they wanted.

Im suprised Europe and Russia still havent got fully working systems yet. You would think it would be a top priority for any major military since it clearly is a awesome system to use for weapons.

You mean for the first one above or the second one?. the second was a year ago


GLONASS is functioning but only in some areas of the world so it wouldn't be a global system but provides positioning for the areas where satillites are hovering above.

The other european powers have galileo and the GPS so i wouldn't think it would be nessary to have both. Galileo is said to provide the same accuracy as military GPS.

And china has Beidu which only covers asia
