NASA gives Indian names to rocks on Mars
KOLKATA, JUN 13 (PTI) American space agency NASA has given Indian names to certain types of rocks on Mars, a senior planetary geologist at the space agency's Mars Mission said today.
"NASA has given Indian names to a number of rocks. We shall disclose the names soon after NASA gives a clearance to make this classified information public," NASA planetary geologist Amitabha Ghosh, currently on a three-city tour to India, told PTI today.
Ghosh said the rocks were named in consultation with Indian geophysicists and astrophysicists.
