India celebrates 100th space mission

The project has been met with criticism from economists who say there are more pressing issues facing Indians, where millions survive on less than a dollar a day.

    Scientists in India are celebrating the 100th launch of their space mission.

    India is one of the few developing countries with a space programme and the government has spent billions of dollars on the project.

    The project has been a milestone achievement for the Indian Space Research Organisation which was established with resources so scarce that some scientists had to operate out of a cow shed.
