“There are some who question the relevance of space activities in a
developing nation. To us, there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not
have the fantasy of competing with the economically advanced nations in
the exploration of the moon or the planets or manned space-flight. But
we are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role nationally,
and in the community of nations, we must be second to none in the
application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man and
society. “
