Quotes

"NASA and Indian scientists have a long history of collaboration in space science," John Grunsfeld, NASA associate administrator for science, said. "These new agreements between NASA and ISRO in Earth science and Mars exploration will significantly strengthen our ties and the science that we will be able to produce as a result."
"The construction and launch of such a telescope will probably cost at least $10 billion [£6.2 billion] and won't happen for at least 20 years - a lot of technology development needs to happen first - but it could be the most exciting mission of my lifetime."
"Timeliness of data is a key criteria for end users of Earth Observation images and today's announcement with Nanoracks is expected to add significantly to Urthecast's downlink capabilities" explained UrtheCast's CEO, Scott Larson
