It really has not been that much in the news, and it might not be that spectacular compared to Obama's victory. But belonging to a generation that watched the first man on the moon, for me it is still something awe-inspiring, and I can not understand, why it is not news worthy. But today India successfully landed an impact probe on the moon, thus becoming the 4th nation to deposit earthly matter there. The "carrier" of the probe Chandrayaan-1 will remain in orbit of the moon for two years to carry out scientific experiments.
