Date set for Indian moon mission

India will launch its first unmanned mission to the moon on 22 October, the country's space officials say, weather conditions permitting.

The spacecraft, named Chandrayaan-1, will orbit round the moon surveying its surface with high-resolution equipment.

The launch had been scheduled for April. But it was pushed back due to technical problems.

The project will cost $83m and has the direct involvement of six other countries, including the United States.

Oh yeah...and why are the USA involved.. (Dear India, please don't photograph our 'landing sites'...that's american territory that thar be..)

Good luck to the mission...

Lets ope the manned mission will be far greater and not shot in a swimming pool like some have suggested the China space walk was

well with NASA- Never a straight answer- involved it would be kind of difficult for the mission to be totally independent.

There are many questions that need to be answered first in order to know if this mission will be showing us anything different from the blurry-airbrushed-fabricated pictures that NASA has given us throughout the years.

For example:

- Has NASA invested money in this mission, if so, how much is it compared to the investment made by India?.

- Does this probe carry american components?, controlled by the americans of course (please let it not be the cameras and image equipment, that would settle the question for me)

- Will the transmissions from the moon go through NASA`s space center in Australia?.

Depending on the answers of this and many other questions we might be able to have hope.
