Proud moment

Today our country's space agency ISRO has acheived a major milestone by launching its indegineous launch vehicle with foriegn payload ( which only very few other countries has done ).. yes what u read is true.. India has launched its PSLV - C8 with an italian satellite and our own satellite into the orbit.. thought it has already launched a few other foriegn satellites with its launch vehicle previously those all were of small ones with limited scope and functionalities.... but this one is more than a regular satelite with tons of functionalities which made a break-thru in our space programmes.. ISRO got a great aplause from the entire nation.. not to mention thou from our President too... who is a major inspiration for such events...
