Yet Another Lunar Probe in the Pipeline

Chandrayaan-I Set For Launch Later This Year

Chandrayaan-I (say that five times fast) is the ISRO's (India) first Lunar probe.  Set for a winter launch, it will carry five (5) Indian and six (6) international experiments.  Already assemble and undergoing tests, the designers of Chandrayaan-I are looking ahead to Chandrayaab-II - a joint project with Russia to land a rover on the Moon.
