FEDERAL Minister Fawad Chaudhry, who recently took charge of the science and technology sector in Pakistan, said that Hubble Space Telescope, the world’s biggest, was sent into space by Pakistan’s aeronautics and aerospace research agency – the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco).
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) should be immediately contacted to get its records straight, else it can be sued for copy rights violations.
To further set the record straight, Suparco launched its satellite in space in the 1990s which lost its control from the earth station and we were strongly warned by the world space authorities not to send garbage into the space ever for the sake of preserving outer space environment.
