India announces no manned lunar mission – like in Russia and America did Extraterrestrial UFOs tell India not to go to moon with humans on board?

According to the head of Indian Space Program G Madhavan Nair, Chairman of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), India has no plan to send human beings to moon. This is in direct contradiction to what ISRO and Government of India officials have been saying so far. Up till this time, media reports were very clear that for the sake of India’s pride and prestige, lunar mission was a must and India was looking forward to an accelerated schedule to land human beings on the moon.

The sudden reverse turn in India’s plan and action is interesting. According to many international space research think tanks, American and Russians were told by the Extraterrestrial world body of the Universe that they should not send any human beings to moon. Many even go to the extent of suggesting that Apollo 11 never landed on the moon. Some have suggested that Apollo 11 did land on the moon only to find UFOs and other advanced civilizations using moon as a space station.

ISRO announcement provides some light on the fact that there were several reports in the media that UFOs and Extraterrestrial civilizations were contacting Indian Government. Several UFO sightings still continue in the Himalayas region. There are also reports of underground UFO bases in Indo-China border areas.

India now plans an unmanned lunar mission. According to Mr.Nair the priorities have changed.

Since the Apollo missions, no country in the world has ventured into the moon or any where above the immediate atmosphere of the earth with human beings. Some point out hazards of radiation. Recently, President Bush has announced an American manned lunar mission in twenty years. Why should it take twenty years to go there if we human beings have already achieved the same thirty-five years back?

India will launch a two-year Lunar probe but has no plan to land a man or woman on moon in the near future. It is also looking for research institutes wanting to piggyback their scientific equipment on the Indian satellite, head of Indian Space Programme G Madhavan Nair, has said. Nair, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the Space Commission, is in Brussels to attend two international space conferences and discuss India's participation in the European Union's satellite radio navigation programme, Galileo.

"India has no plans to land a man on the moon in the near future," he told the India news in Europe program. Nair, who is also the Secretary of the Government's Department of Space, said the agreement on Galileo was finalized a week ago.

"It will be signed in a few weeks time, either in New Delhi or Brussels," he said adding during the agreement's second phase "India will decide how much money it will invest in the project."

Pointing out the major differences between India's space program and that of other countries, he said, "Their applications are generally military or commercial, while in India they are aimed at improving the quality of life of the people, including the 75 per cent living in villages."

Asked if the Indian space industry feared competition from China, Nair said, "There is nothing like that. They have their own program and we have ours. National priorities are set, and we work according to them."

Stating that India's space industry has a bright future, Nair said, "The greatest achievement of India's space industry has been self-reliance. We are self-sufficient in weather and communication satellites."

The Indian space industry, he said, was "as good as any other space industry in the world in terms of quality and cost effectiveness."

Indeed, "European industries can find a lot of sources in India for the supply of parts, whether for aircraft, satellites or spacecraft." He underlined the importance of cooperation in earth observation.

"Each country has its own space craft engaged in various kinds of missions. We should now look how the data can be meaningfully utilized," he said. Nair said, "India is seriously considering establishing a tsunami warning system for the region, even though such destructive ocean waves are a very rare phenomenon in the Indian Ocean, whereas they occur almost every month in the Pacific Ocean."

Thanks to its efficient communication channels, "India distributed its satellite data to Sri Lanka, Thailand and Indonesia the very next day after the tsunami struck on December 26," he said.
