BANGALORE (BNS): The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will set up a special pavilion at the Aero India 2009 show to mark its progress in the advancement of space with its recent success of Chandrayaan-1 mission.

The 550 sq meter space pavilion would be placed along with the Human Resource Pavilion in exhibition area

ISRO scientists are expected to be present at the pavilion to explain the Chandrayaan-1 mission and future space explorations to visitors at the show. This will also give the space agency a window if any country is interested in tying up with India on space exploration.

According to government officials ISRO Chairman Madhavan Nair is also expected to attend the air show.

Exhibitors are hoping that the Aero India 2009 will yield business, apart from focusing on human resource activities.

Chandrayaan-1 was successfully launched on October 22, 2008. From the textbook launch of the indigenously crafted spacecraft with 11 payloads, to the incredible images being flashed home, Chandrayaan is an amazing story of ingenuity and hard work.

ISRO no doubt is open to tie-up for more space exploration projects and Aero India is just the right place to do so.
