In the article, "India plans manned space mission in 2016," found at http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/asiapcf/01/29/india.manned.space.mission/index.html?eref=rss_world&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_world+%28RSS%3A+World%29&utm_content=Google+Reader composed at CNN, it describes India's plans for a great journey into space 300 km over the earth for one week. Reading this makes me take a better look at the rate our planet is progressing today. Before the 1930's, India was ruled by Great Britain and was considered a 3rd world country. Now it seems that India is making great strides to catch up with all the other modern world powers. This accomplishment will be one of man's great strides and is anticipated to be a memorable experience. However, this is not the only feat achieved by the nation of India in the last 100 years. In 2008 India launched an unmanned probe to the moon and in 1984 an Indian by the name of Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to explore space. The nation of India has made some very progressive leaps and bounds in the last century and is continually impressing the public today.
