Indian-American with roots in Telangana in Nasa moon mission team
HYDERABAD: Four years from now, an Indian-American with family roots in Telangana’s Mahbubnagar district may well be walking on the moon.
The United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) has announced Raja Jon Vurputoor Chari’s name in the 18-member ‘Artemis’ team sed for the ambitious lunar exploration programme. Chari would be the third Indian-American in space after Kalpana Chawla in 1997 and Sunita Williams in 2006. He was among those chosen from 18,000 applicants in 2017 when the NASA announced the Artemis programme.
美国国家航空航天局(NASA)宣布，拉贾·乔恩·伍尔普托尔·查里加入了雄心勃勃的月球探索计划“ 阿耳特弥斯”团队，团队成员共18名。查里将是继1997年的卡尔帕纳·舒拉和2006年的苏尼塔·威廉姆斯之后，第三位进入太空的印度裔美国人。2017年，当NASA宣布“ 阿耳特弥斯”项目时，他从18000名申请者中脱颖而出。
“Meet Raja Chari, an initial member of the Nasa’s Artemis team who will help pave the way for the next human missions on and around the moon,” Nasa Aeronautics said in an announcement about Raja Chari on Twitter.
Chari’s father Srinivas Chari, who hails from Mahbubnagar, migrated to the US after completing his education in Osmania University in Hyderabad.
US Vice-Presi nt Mike Pence announced the names of the 18 members sed for the Artemis programme at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida on Wednesday.

AMERICAN not Indian ... please correct..
His father left India in 1950s. His son is an American. Stop this garbage of appropriating Indians. If he will be on the moon it will be on his merit and not because of his Indianness.
BHAKTON.... american not Indian
Alcohol Kills Ganja Chills
Just an Indian Name..
stop celebrating or feeling proud of this indian American connection...... they left India for good only to find better opportunities and green pastures ..... nothing to feel proud of that he had some Indian roots .....
Why dont they say India fail to even put human in space.
How does it matter....out of 190 countries only 2 countries could put their own man in space. An Indian already went into space many decades ago with the help of our Soviet friends.
It shows again and again that Indians are not inferior to whites. It is Feku, aka Surrender Modi, who makes us inferior. It's no secret that Feku does not believe in science.

Manr brain drain has happened because it is our Goverment controlled by illetrate polticians who is interested in develo their personnel benefit and not bother to develop the economy. since 1947 - India with huge manpower / so many educational institues / with huge apple of money - indian econmy is still behind, what a shame . Those who left Indian soil / have surrendered india citizen due to some factor and no more called Indian.

Master Stroke by Modi Durbar!
Truth is they never paid back to their roots. They made their bucks and lives secure there which they couldnt ...
Say Indian origin
How does it matter... he naturally invokes pride among Indians, like the way Sundar Pichai and Satya Nadella does.
Yo Toilet paper of India ... You can put many stories of Indian-Indian with roots in India is achieving great heights in ISRO ...
what to be proud of ???
Congratulations....Proud moment for all Indians and Indian origin people.
My pride for an american with indian roots being sed on a moon mission is much less compared to my shame that an indian bigot mass murdered is currently ruling my motherland. Th only reason I gave up my citizenship in 2017 and became a naturalised Canadian.
Mr.Chari , you have India aproud proud .Wish you all the best sir.
