Loony hopes?

This is awesome, but what would be awesomer is if we had at least ONE woman, a token even, in those rows and rows of men with identical white shirts.

A lunar mission is not really great shakes – at least five (six including ESA) countries have ‘done that’. Maybe not one to the South Pole of the moon, but still. India could really break some records by putting a Woman on the moon.

Here’s to hoping.

Update 10/27:

I’ve been putting this in my chat status messages, but just wanted to put this out here as well:

Khushboo Mirza is my hero.

launch of Chandrayaan I but also on the success achieved by Khushboo
Mirza.Khushboo is in the 12 member core team of engineers who have developed
satellite system for the mission.Khushboo completed her B tech with Gold medal
from Aligarh Muslim University. Her teachers and classmates are feeling proud
over her feat.Before joining Indian Space Research Organisation ‘ISRO’ Khushboo

India’s maiden moon spacecraft, was on Wednesday put into Transfer Orbit around
the earth by the Polar Launch Vehicle PSLV-C11 about 19 minutes after it blasted
off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre here.
