And like the original Voyager satellites, which carried recordings of earth songs and languages, the Indian satellite carries a blu ray disc of several Bollywood dance scenes. :lol: :cool:

Kudos to the scientists involved in this effort. They deserve the recognition far more than corrupt politicians and spoilt celebrity brats.
