Indians May Set Foot on the Moon by 2015 - 2003-01-06

India plans to send a manned mission to the moon sometime between 2005 and 2015, an announcement that followed hard on the heels of China’s plans to launch its first manned space flight in the second half of this year. “In a few months from now, there will be a review of our plans for a lunar mission. We would first send an unmanned flight around the moon, " said Mr. Krishnaswamy Kasturirangan, head of the Indian Space Research Organization.
