Agra: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) plans to set up a space platform in the next 25-20 years according to its chairman G Madhavan Nair.

Nair said the space platform would help bring back a capsule safely to earth which at present either gets damaged or destroyed. He said by rescuing a capsule, it could be used again. He added that the platform could also be used to send rockets with a range of 100-150 km.

Nair said the Chandrayan I satellite would be launched by March next year and will be established about ten km away from the surface of the moon.
