DHAKA: The world’s largest space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration seeks to partner with the Indian Space Research Organisation for future space endeavours.
NASA has offered that India could use its top class facilities of the astronaut training programme of the Indian astronauts.
The offer has come at a time when Indian origin Astronaut Sunita Williams gears up to head for her latest rendezvous with the International Space Station, reports NDTV.
This bold, forward looking and friendly announcement was made by the top man at NASA, Charles F Bolden, when speaking at Europe’s largest science meeting the Euro Science Open Forum being held in Dublin, Ireland where over 4000 scientists are participating.
On being asked by NDTV, Bolden replied, ‘We are encouraged by India’s space programme, which is oriented towards meeting India’s needs of Earth observation, adding that India also hopes to have a human space programme soon’.
