Fawad Chaudhry was also trolled on social media when he mistakenly said the Hubble Space Telescope was sent into space by Pakistan’s aeronautics and aerospace research agency instead of its US counterpart, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Speaking in Geo News’ programme Naya Pakistan, Science & Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry mentioned that “the world’s biggest telescope … was sent by Suparco [Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission]”.
Chaudhry told talk show host Shahzad Iqbal: “… one of the ways to see is the Hubble Telescope, which is the world’s biggest telescope and was sent [into space] by Suparco, which is installed in a satellite.
“Then there are other satellites, and there are other [types of] technologies,” he continued.
