World over, the name of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) is looked upon with respect and awe. This organisation reached Mars at a fuel cost per kilometre less than an autorickshaw, and it is not a joke. Nothing more needs to be said about the technological prowess and cost-effectiveness of ISRO. Moreover, ISRO has undertaken several projects and has planned many initiatives which will take it to new heights unknown
Two years back India proudly stabilized its famous Mangalyan into the Mars orbit. With this India became just the fourth in the world and first in Asia to reach Mars. Importantly no nation in the world has accomplished this feat in its first attempt. Moreover India’s technology is the cheapest and yet most-advanced in the world. To achieve this, around 500 scientists of ISRO worked day and night to write a new chapter in India’s Space Programme.
Not to be forgotten, the share of Indian women scientists among the team of 500 researchers of Mars Orbiter Mission is significant. Among them ‘Mrs. Minal Sampath’ shouldered the major responsibility in capacity of ‘System Engineer’. To mark a successful beginning of Indigenous Mangalyan, Mrs. Sampath along with other researchers burnt their midnight oil stretching over 18 hours daily. Before the propulsion of India’s Mangalyan in space, Mrs. Sampath and all the researchers with her had abstained from taking any leaves, that too for over two years. During that period her son too had fallen sick. But even here she gave preference to her work. Her family too supported her in all these situations. While explaining the journey of Mangalyan, Mrs. Sampath, working as its System Engineer shared her experiences saying that she almost forgot that she is a woman.
At the accomplishment of India’s mission to Mars Mrs. Sampath with all her female colleagues working on the control panel of ISRO celebrated the joyous moment. The photographs of these celebrations went viral on social media. These women of ISRO dressed in typical Indian attire of saree and with gajras (flower strings) in their hair were applauded worldwide by everyone.
Indian Space Association (ISpA), a public-private partnership initiative between the Government of India, ISRO and private space companies, was launched this week at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The event marks a significant policy change in which the Government has transformed its role from a controller to an enabler. Liberalization of ‘Space’ Economy Space has so far been a state subject, where private players have had a very

India celebrates the 100th satellite launch – ISRO launches ‘Cartosat-II-F’ and 31 more satellites in space Shriharikota : By launching in space the 100th satellite, indigenously built in India, the Indian Space Research Center (ISRO), has made history. One another historic landmark was achieved on Friday by ISRO, when it launched ‘Cartosat-II F’ series and 31 other satellites in space via PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle). ISRO has been showered
US’s ‘MOAB’ attack on Afghanistan shocks ‘IS’ as well as Pakistan Washington/Kabul: The US shocked the whole world by experimenting with the 10,000 kg bomb, the ‘GBU-43/B Massive Ordinance Air blast Bomb (MOAB)’ aka ‘Mother of all Bombs’ on Afghanistan. The bomb was dropped near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and according to the released information, 36 terrorists were killed due to it. But the tremors of this bomb were also felt
India to derive its energy from moon by 2030, claim ISRO scientists New Delhi: After successfully launching the ‘Chandrayaan’ and ‘Mangalyaan’ in their very first attempt, the ‘Indian Space Research Organisation’ (ISRO) has just accomplished a new feat by launching 104 satellites into orbit in one go. Next, ‘IRSO’ is now concentrating their efforts on a project to derive India’s energy needs from the moon. Dr. Sivathanu Pillai, a leading scientist

On 19th February 2016 India’s premier space agency, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully tested high-thrust indigenous cryogenic engine. This successful test will now make it possible for India in launching the heavy-lift version of the geo-stationary satellite launch vehicle (GSLV). But as a matter of fact, this milestone could have been accomplished long back. However, this project was hindered by an ‘international conspiracy’ to curtail India as
On behalf of all the Shraddhavan friends of Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu,I heartily congratulate Indian Space Research Organisation and all its personnel for achieving epochal success in Mission Mangalyaan. Mangalyaan also known as Mars Orbiter Mission is India’s maiden mission to Mars. It is incredible that a day before the launch of the mission i.e. on 5th November 2013, ISRO Chairman K. Radhakrishnan had himself placed a scale model of the
