Speaking after inaugurating ISRO’s network of automatic weather station’s tele medicine and tele education centre in Madikeri on Thursday, he said conducive weather is required for the life to start on moon. The possibility of life in Moon is minimal.

He said, “ISRO has the dream to take man to moon. However, if anyone wishes to settle down in Moon, then supply of water and oxygen will be a costly affair. The tracing of water on moon has raised several questions before the scientific community.”

 “As many as 16,500 ISRO personnel’s efforts are behind the success of Chandrayaan 1. Farsightedness and leadership are essential behind any effort. Human life on moon is difficult as temperature on moon is very high. As a result, it is difficult to take human being to Moon. ISRO is planning to invent a new model of machine.”

ISRO advisor S K Das said, “US and Russia have made several attempts to study water content on moon. However, it was not successful.” Kodagu Planters Association Vice President A M Chittiappa was also present.
