Glad I found this, a nice modern take on exploring the Moon.

Thanks as always, Jatan!

I have a question for you related to Chandrayaan 3 and the OneWeb launches. You showed a bit of annoyance at ISRO prioritizing commercial over national space, and I can understand that. But, in a previous article you spoke about ISRO’s lack of resources (and how both the perception and actual lack bugged you). Is it necessarily a bad thing to prioritize commercial launches that would bring in money? It seems to me like developing a reputation as a strong commercial launch provider would pay for future national launches as well. Or am I thinking about this the wrong way?
