achieved 60 years ago

Sixty years ago, Pakistan achieved a milestone that put it ahead of not only India but also most of the Muslim and developing countries. In June 1962, Pakistan became the third country in Asia and the tenth in the world to launch a rocket into space. This story of his is quite unbelievable but true.

On an official visit, then-President John F. Kennedy told his Pakistani counterpart Ayub Khan that NASA hoped to send a man to the Moon by the end of the decade. In this they will need help from some other countries including Pakistan. Dr. Abdus Salam, who was then the head of the Atomic Energy Commission, was called to a meeting at NASA.

what was the whole story
NASA told the two about its ambition of sending humans to the moon. NASA said that the rockets would have to be placed in Earth’s orbit before being sent towards the Moon. This meant that they needed data about every point in the planet’s atmosphere. Along with this, he also wanted information about the ‘Black Hole’ located above the Indian Ocean. Before starting the mission from NASA, it was very important to know about the conditions above 30,000 feet above this area. The southern end of Pakistan meets the Indian Ocean, it was quite fortunate in this sense.

help for information
America offered help to Pakistan in exchange for information. Tariq Mustafa, 27, was put in charge of the operation. Ayub Khan himself found a military range at Sonmiani in Balochistan which could become a launch pad. Mustafa formed a team of five people. The team also included electronics expert Salim Mehmood, director of the meteorological department M Rahmatullah, retired air force officer and communications expert flight lieutenant A Z Farooqui and mechanical engineer Sikandar Zaman.
