Indian Space Research Organization is one of the autonomous and leading Space Agency in the World. Famously ISRO created an unmatchable World record on February 15, 2017, after successfully launching of 104 Nano Satellites using PSLV C37 launch vehicle. This has been the 39th mission of the PSLV since it has been established. Along with this, the mission is a
path-breaking solution for the commercially efficient and low-cost satellite launch vehicle.
Since the launch of the first rocket on November 21, 1963, from ‘Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launch Station’ (TERLS) which was later re-named as the ‘Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre’ (VSSC) to the recent launch from Sriharikota. With its path-breaking achievements,
ISRO has made India proud with its remarkable
achievements despite various hurdles it faced since its establishment.
ISRO has always faced the issues of lack of funding, yet the Indian scientists didn’t gave up and gave their all-time with full dedication towards their work and achieving the success. ISRO is the only institution in the whole world which is capable of and it did all its mission on a very cheap price as compare to other countries.
ISRO has always faced the crisis of funding due to the lukewarm interest of the Governing bodies in the past phase.
In early 1970, under the leadership of APJ Abdul Kalam, ISRO achieved success in developing the Satellite Launch Vehicle (SLV) project. The sole aim of making the project was to develop the necessary technology to launch the satellites. This makes things easier for the ISRO in the coming future. Further,
ISRO gets success in making its own space observatory ‘AstroSat’.
There was a time when India needed the support of other countries like
America to launch its satellite, but these countries didn’t support India. This made India wait a long and make their own launch vehicle. Now, India is capable of supporting its own space missions successfully.
Apart from that ISRO is giving its helping hand to those countries who once denied to help India.
ISRO is slowly moving towards its aim to use space technology in innumerable ways to help in building nation and represent in the World Space Agencies. In the last 4-5 years the things have been evolving rapidly and due to which the ISRO has been evolving and achieving its firm feet not only in space but also in the world space agencies as well.
In 2017, ISRO added a feather to its kitty by launching over 200 foreign satellites into orbit. And later on, it successfully launches 29 Nano satellites from 14 countries.
India became the first country who successfully reached into Mars Orbit and in this noteworthy is that in its first attempt only. After this, another feather on ISRO and Indian tri-color flag was when ISRO
successfully launched its heavyweight GSLV
Mk3 rocket which was its biggest rocket till date. ISRO achieved another milestone in the same launch as it has been heaviest rocket ever to be launched from the Indian soil. The
communication satellite weighed total 3,163 kg and its life will be on the mission for 10 years.
Apart from that, the latest addition on ISRO success is launching of ‘Chandrayan II’ on the occasion when the whole world has been celebrating the 50th
Anniversary of Man on Moon. India made the Chandrayan II at a very cheap price, and this is being a great message to the whole world that this can be achieved in such a less expense too.
Scientists are very talented and they always find the option to do the things is less budget. The only thing is they need financial assistance and moral support from the authorities to do so. As the present government is supporting ISRO very well and as a return these brilliant scientists are giving the result and India is achieving success in every field wherever they are trying.
