They’re at least thinking along those lines: India debates space flight as lunar project proceeds

India’s space agency is ready to send a man into space within seven years if the government gives the nod, while preparations have already begun for the launching of an unmanned lunar mission, a top official said Sunday…

Nair said “a lot of debate” had to take place in India before a final decision is made on a manned space flight.

“The benefits and the costs involved have to be examined,” he said. “Various facilities and equipment such as a space capsule for human habitation, shielding, control and safety features have to be built. A large amount of funding is required.”
