"Did anyone ever check to see if this thing leaks?"

It is the year 2014. India's finally managed to send someone into space entirely on its own. After a successful launch, the space vehicle is being monitored from the Master Control Facility. Some 10 hours after liftoff, one of the Gaganauts (or would you prefer Vishwanauts?) calls up ground control.

"Hassan, we've had a problem."

LOL, love the way Gagana blends into naut :) Funny, try as I might, I haven't been able to get the etymo of Gagana. Even the Sanskrit dictionary I have just says it is 'sky' and stop s there without saying why it's called 'Gagana'
