Abstract

The ancient texts of Sanskrit - the Vaimanika Shastra, Rmanyane, Rig Veda and Mahbharatha - tell of how, many years ago, the whole sky blazed when a rocket ship called the vimana ascended into the heavens. The best translation of the Sanskrit tells us that the vimana “gave forth a fierce glow, the whole sky was ablaze, it made a roaring like thunderclouds” and took off.
