India has successfully launched its first spacecraft Chandrayaan-1 today. With the launch, India joined the elite club nations — USA, Russia, European Space Agency, China and Japan. It is definitely a huge step for India’s space ambitions. ISRO had announced a week back that they will do it today (October 22) I was hoping  in particular they do it today, which happens to be my birthday!

As a surprise, I got a call from Radio Mirchi RJ “Anjana” about my purchase of land in Moon for my wife. I told her I did it because I thought it was a cool idea – a novelty. At the same time, listeners should be aware that there is currently no real value or legal framework for buying lands in Moon today, so this is a not an investment for future.
