Indian leaders and some of the space scientists had criticized ISRO for Mars Mission in 2013, arguing that with limited available resources, ISRO should prioritize its spending and avoid wasteful expenditure. Now, space scientists have points to make in support of India’s own space station.
New Delhi - Seeking clear roadmap and financial support on space program from government, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chairman AS Kiran Kumar said that India has the capability to develop a space station, but it needed a long-term approach and ambitious planning. "We have all the capabilities to set up a space station. The day the country takes the decision, we will 'okay' the project. Just draw a policy and provide us necessary funds and time," ISRO chief said.
