are some who question the relevance of space activities in a developing nation.
To us, there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not have the fantasy of
competing with the economically advanced nations in the exploration of the moon
or the planets or manned space-flight. But we are convinced that if we are to
play a meaningful role nationally, and in the comity of nations, we must be
second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems
of man and society.
