#1
Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 26 (PTI) Exuding confidence that India's space programme will soar fresh heights under new ISRO chief K Radhakrishnan, its outgoing chairman G Madhavan Nair today said his successor will be able to carry forward the agency's plans, including the most challenging manned moon mission to space.

"He (Radhakrishnan) is a talented and highly competent scientist. He knows things as he has been there in ISRO for 35 years. He will be able to carry forward our plans. We have drawn up plans for 2020-25," Nair told reporters at the airport here in the presence of Radhakrishnan.

Radhakrishnan, Director of Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre here, has been appointed the Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in Bangalore. He will succeed Nair, who is retiring at the end of this month.

"A major challenge before ISRO is the manned mission (to space).
