Indian Space Launch Explodes

Posted by on December 26th, 2010

India’s space agency experienced its second launch failure of the year when a rocket carrying a communication satellite exploded shortly after takeoff.

Yashpal, a retired Indian scientist and independent commentator, said he was very disappointed by Saturday’s failure, but other countries too have experienced such problems.

“I hope it’s just one of those things,” Yashpal, who uses one name, told reporters.

Manned spaceflight is planned for 2016.
