ISRO can't get it up

The Indian Space Research Organisation are in need of a dose of Viagra, because they just can't get it up. The GSAT-5P that is. In a second disastrous attempt to get the satellite payload in to orbit a "glitch" in the first stage saw the rocket explode in spectacular style. On the previous attempt the rocket plunged in to the bay of Bengal. You just have to feel for these guys, they are trying hard but the lessons of other space programs don't seem to be being learnt here. Maybe a word of warning, as well, to those 3rd World countries trying to get their own Inter Continental Nuclear Missiles built, don't bother you are more likely to kill yourselves than any perceived enemy. And another to those thinking of booking a ride on Virgin's commercial space tourist program, space travel is hazardous to your health.
