Weasel wording[edit]

"Through his various policies, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru contributed to the development of science, technology, agriculture, and education in modern India"

"In september 2008 Indian scientists developed a path-breaking technology that has the potential to increase the range of missiles and satellite launch vehicles by at least 40%.The enhanced range is made possible by adding a special-purpose coating of chromium metal to the blunt nose cone of missiles and launch vehicles. This would add-up on the above stated range."

Until sources aren't provided for these statements, please do not remove tags. --Dilli Billi (talk) 08:47, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Wow. I don't know when that was inserted but the next time you see text like that just delete it. Nehru was the first prime minister of India and he did try to do those things as explained in Nanda 2006. That text is cited.

Next time you see unsourced text. Just do this. JSR (talk) 09:02, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
IMO, saying "Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru contributed to the development of science, technology, agriculture, and education in modern India" seems to be a political statement at its best. I've replaced his image with one on Vikram Sarabhai so that there are no hidden political motives involved here. --Dilli Billi (talk) 20:07, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Instead of politicizing every single statement we must think of Nehru as a first PM who naturally took some steps to develop his country's science program. Having said that, adding Sarabhai is good, better even.
I have replaced the caption in Vikram Sarabhai from "Vikram Sarabhai, noted Indian physicist, is widely considered to be the father of India's highly successful space program[1]" to "Dr. Vikram Sarabhai—a physicist considered to be 'the father of India's space program'—[2]was instrumental in the creation of both the Indian Space Research Organisation and the Physical Research Laboratory (Ahemadabad)."

Mars Orbiter Mission, Chandrayaan-1[edit]

Comments are needed to add the below proposed--

Proposed text
  • Mars Orbiter Mission

[[File:PSLV-CA 1.jpg|thumb|PSLV-C8 (CA Variant) carrying the AGILE x-ray and γ-ray astronomical satellite of the Italian Space Agency lifting off from the SDSC, Sriharikota.]]

Main article: Mars_Orbiter_Mission

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), also called Mangalyaan[3] was launched on 5 November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) [4][5][6][7] It is India's first interplanetary mission[8] making ISRO the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after the Soviet space program, NASA, and the European Space Agency[9][10] and the first Asian nation to reach Mars orbit, and the first nation to do so on its first attempt.[11][12][13][14]. On 18 November 2008, the Moon Impact probe was released from Chandrayaan-1 at a height of 100 km (62 mi). During its 25 minute decent, Chandra's Altitudinal Composition Explorer (CHACE) recorded evidence of water in 650 mass spectra readings gathered during this time.[15] On 24 September 2009 Science journal reported that the Chandrayaan-1 had detected water ice on the Moon.[16]
