This country's ambitious space program suffered another blow Wednesday when its second attempt to launch a big rocket into space failed minutes after blastoff. India's Space Commission chairman Udipi Ramchandra Rao told reporters the fault appeared to be in the first stage of the rocket. He said mission control lost contact 210 seconds after the 39-ton four-stage rocket lifted off from the southern island of Sriharikota.

India took a major step forward in space Saturday with the successful launch of its own four-stage booster rocket, meant to make the country one of the "big boys" in the business of commercial satellite launches. Thirteen months after the first try ended in failure, Saturday's blastoff was a white-knuckle triumph for India's space scientists, who have had their share of flops and have had to work around a two-year U.S. ban on sales of space components to their nation.
