Submitted by

TheCybernator writes "BANGALORE, India — India's space agency placed an Italian satellite in orbit Monday, bolstering the South Asian nation's efforts to win a slice of the billion-dollar global launch market. The India-made Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) put the Agile astronomical satellite into its intended orbit about 550 kilometres (325 miles) above the earth 20 minutes after blast-off. http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticleNew.asp? xfile=data/subcontinent/2007/April/subcontinent_Ap ril892.xml&section=subcontinent&col="

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
