In its first test flight the space vehicle would then take off from Gujar Khan and land at Nawabshah, provided it succeeds to fly over Adyala jail
The US rover curiosity has landed on planet Mars and has begun its operations. It took almost five years to build this spacecraft at a cost of US $2.5 billion and it took eight months to successfully cover 350 million miles into space to land this vehicle on the surface of the red planet.
However, the Americans are fools; they used sophisticated technology and plutonium power to run this machine. That cost billions of dollars.
We here in Pakistan have great brains. Had NASA contacted us before launching this project, we would have not only helped in developing a superior mobile space lab, its design would have also saved the huge amount of money spent on fueling the ship.
Professor Dr. Ghulam Sarwar Chaudhary (Homeo) of Lahore, the inventor of the first water powered car would have built the spacecraft at a fraction of the cost incurred on “curiosity”, while Agha Waqar of Khairpur could have fixed a water kit in the system to provide unlimited energy to the engine through electrolysis. Samar Mubarakmand could have provided additional energy through the use of Thar coal by gasifying the engine while Dr. Shaukat Pervez of PCSIR would have provided bio gas to run other systems in the rover.
Abdul Qadeer Khan, father of the “bum” would have helped in developing the required alloys; provided his name is engraved on the ship and he be given the opportunity to press the launching button under limelight………plus two plots in Islamabad.
One can imagine that on the day of the launch, ministers Khurshid Shah, Qamar Zaman Kaira and Mir Hazar Khan Bajarani would recite inspirational poems in unison before its launch.
Talat Hussain, Hamid Mir, Arshad Sharif; the kharpainch anchors would jointly conduct the live transmission from near the launching pad.
Finally President Asif Ali Zardari would come along with Raja Pervez Ashraf and both will press the launch button together.
In its first test flight the space vehicle would then take off from Gujar Khan and land at Nawabshah, provided it succeeds to fly over Adyala jail.
Congrats, fellow countrymen, Pakistan enters into the space age.
