Seems like everyone is going to the moon but us.
"Michael D. Griffin, Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), United States, will visit three key facilities of the Indian Space Research Organisation between May 9 and 11.
On Tuesday he and ISRO Chairman G. Madhavan Nair will sign a memorandum of understanding in Bangalore for Chandrayaan, ISRO's spacecraft to the moon, to carry two U.S. scientific payloads to conduct experiments. Plans are afoot for the ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle to launch Chandrayaan from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, in 2007-08.
The U.S. payloads are a mini synthetic aperture radar from the Applied Physics Laboratory to detect water in the polar region of the moon; and a mapper from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to prospect for minerals on the lunar surface."
