Chandrayaan lifts off from Sriharikota

October 21, 2008
 
India's maiden moon mission Chandrayaan-1 successfully lifted off from the second launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on Wednesday.
Chandrayaan lifted-off at 0620 hours on board the indigenously-built rocket, PSLV-C11, from the spaceport of Sriharikota on the east coast in Andhra Pradesh, some 100 km north of Chennai.

The event marks India's entry into select band of lunar explorers -- the European Space Agency (ESA), Japan, China, the US and Russia which have undertaken moon missions.

WRT our old discussion on the name, one Bengali paper insists on calling it "Chaandraayan-1"  ;D
