Staying behind in space... By Shakir
07 February, 2013
Iran's space programme is now very advanced and has recently sent a monkey into space. I remember in the mid-1960s that Pakistan's space programme began with a lot of fanfare, with the launching of two rockets (Rehbar 1 and 2). This caused great concern in India, which did not have a space programme then. Now, with India planning to land a man on the moon and Iran also way ahead of Pakistan, should we not try to find out where we went wrong? Was it due to massive corruption that we lost the race?
