India's moon mission: A great leap for domestic business?


India on Friday sent its Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft on a mission to land on the moon, hoping to join the three other countries that have managed the feat. Comparatively, though, India's quest has a considerably lower budget, with a price tag of $74.6 million. The launch comes at a time of growing opportunities in the space industry, and according to an Indian minister, the country's space sector is on a trajectory to become a trillion-dollar economy in the coming years.
