"Ultimately, why we go to the moon is to look at how it can be useful to humanity. For that, we need to go to the moon and come back, it's not just landing there. We need to come back home and then take material back and forth. So, we looked at how we can use this success and make an outline of another opportunity to take it off from the moon and go to orbit," ISRO Chief S Somanath told NDTV. Stressing on the need for such missions, he said if humanity is going to travel beyond earth, habitat creation is needed on the Moon, Mars, and exoplanets, and Indians must be there. "We think of ourselves as so inferior today, that we are not technologically advanced, not financially very powerful, and we always think that we are poor, so we can't invest in all of this. I believe that this has to go, for a nation which thinks that they are the one who are creators of knowledge," he added.
