Desperate Nasa seeks space in Isro mission, DNA
“National Aeronautics & Space Administration (Nasa) is trying hard prevent India’s first manned space mission, tagged at Rs10,000 crore,from being indigenous. And India does not seem to have a problem. …DNA has learnt that US’ desperation emanates from pressure from within their country to restart its manned space mission, which it suspended in 1972 citing huge costs. This follows a review of Nasa’s manned space programme conducted by a 10-member US presidential panel. An Isro scientist told DNA collaboration on India’s manned space mission will benefit India and US. “Nasa is struggling for a higher budget to conduct human space exploration,” he said.”
