India announces it will land on the moon in SEPTEMBER to become the fourth nation to successfully land on the lunar surface
India has announced that its Chandrayaan-2 mission to the moon will launch between July 9-16 this year, after earlier plans for an April lift-off were scrapped.
The mission will make the nation the fourth country to accomplish the feat after China, the US and Russia.
Israel made an attempt earlier this year but failed.
It will be India's first mission to the moon's surface and will aim to land near its south pole, a currently unexplored territory.

Good luck to India. A great achievement. Now then, you really really don't need our billions in foreign aid do you? Plus you have bigger Army, Navy and Air Force and more nuclear weapons than the UK. Could we then have it back please because we really need it. Thanks.

The government should care more about the extreme pollution and poverty their country suffers before sending billions of pounds worth of equipment to the moon.

Time to drastically cut the Foreign Aid. They have existing mass poverty and ignorance and then waste resources on going to a barren satellite they can`t do anything with.

Incredible. Despite NHS and police shortages, the UK gave India £52 million in foreign aid for 18/19 and will give £46 million in the next financial year. Madness.

So this is what they have done with the £50 million foreign aid from UK. Maybe we could have made a space craft to land on the moon with £50 million?
