India: Chandrayaan-1


Model of the Radiation Environment of the Moon

India's first mission to the Moon

Cool animation.

India, China, Japan, Russia have all very impressive space programs. I try to digg some intel out of the internet about them and other less known space agencies, but it is a lot easier to follow the activities of NASA and ESA. :-) In general it is more usual than not that the space missions are international. The great success of NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander mission would not be possible without substantial support from friends from around the world.
