THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Indian tri-colour will fly on the moon on November 8, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) director K.Radhakrishnan said here on Thursday.

 Chandrayaan-1, the culmination of experiments spanning 1963 to 2008, will lift off from Sriharikota on October 22, he said while releasing the logo of ‘Sastra Mela’, being organised by the Sastra Vedi.

 Radhakrishnan said that Vikram Sarabhai’s vision was that the scientific advances we make should benefit the common man, even as we compete in the space-race. The dream has been realised today, he said. Also, through its efforts in science and technology, India had become one of the six leading nations, he said.
