India's first private moon mission in Dec, three Indian teams qualify
Three Indian teams out of seven teams have qualified for the country's first private moon mission in December, space technology start-up TeamIndus said . "Teams Callisto, Ears and Kalpana from India, Space4Life from Italy, Lunadome from Britain, Killa Lab from Peru and Regolith Revolution from the U.S. have qualified to fly their experiments to the lunar surface in our spacecraft," said a TeamIndus. The state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will fly TeamIndus spacecraft (robot) on its PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) from its Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh, about 80 km northeast of Chennai. Launched in mid-2016, Lab2Moon, a global challenge for youth, inspired about 3,000 teams to send in ideas for experiments.
