Senior BJP leader LK Advani on Wednesday hailed the efforts of Indian space scientists over the successful launch of India's maiden moon mission Chandrayaan-1.

"I feel that the successful launch of Chandrayaan is a historic moment for India. I am happy to know about it," he said.

"It is a matter of time...We will send Indian astronauts to moon," Advani said.

The Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha noted that the then NDA Government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee had in 2003 sanctioned the project.
