    India's manned moon mission by 2020: ISRO

    Salem (TN) (PTI): The ISRO proposed to undertake the country's first manned moon mission by 2020 following the success of Chandrayaan-I, project director of Chandrayaan-I M Annadurai has said.

    The successful launch of Chandrayaan-I in October last year has given space scientists the confidence to undertake manned mission to moon, Annadurai told reporters here on Sunday.

    The Chandrayaan-II mission is expected to be undertaken within a couple of years followed by Chandrayaan-III, he said.

    The Chandrayaan-I mission has been sending considerable amount of data and scientists are busy analysing it, he said.

    Several countries have approached India to set up a common lunar research centre for conducting various studies, the director added.
