“ISRO is being admired around the world”
Indian Space Research Organisation, the pride of India from 1969 till today still stuns Indians and the whole world with their space program. And in 2017 PSLV-C37 successfully launched 104 satellites in a single flight proves that the dreams that seem impossible may become possible one day! Similarly, Mangalyaan or MOM, 2014, GSLV Mk III launch, Chandrayaan 1&2 and many are the remarkable milestones of ISRO.
ISRO’s another dream project is on the way and with its visionary space program, the Indian Space Research Organisation is aiming to launch one spacecraft each month in 2018 from its Andhra Pradesh spaceport at Sriharikota.
ISRO is known for having mastered projects and just a month before 2019, another such announcement has been made, the big project of the nation this time directing for the Sun via their mission Aditya-L1, which is scheduled to take place in the next year.
A small step by ISRO is the giant leap for the country:
“We are planning to have at least one launch mission a month in 2018 to deploy satellites in Earth’s orbit for various applications,” said Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman AS Kiran Kumar.
On the sidelines of the inauguration of a Gallery on Space Technology at the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum he said, “For 2018-19 and 2019-20 financial years, we are looking to receive increased budgets from the country in view of the missions.”
ISRO has given a raised budget of Rs 9,000 crore. by the government considering the upcoming mission. And it seems government giving equal importance to the project along with spending such a huge amount on the bullet train.
As the mission will start with Cartosat-2E remote-sensing spacecraft along with 28 nano and micro-satellites in early January and this is the first mission in this regard.
Kumar also said the work on realizing the satellite was in full motion and Chandrayan-2 mission is likely to take place by the first quarter of 2018.
As well as, in the race to win Google Lunar XPRIZE, the state-run ISRO is also expected to fly 600kg spacecraft invented by Team Indus on its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) before March 31, 2018.

According to the ISRO chief, “There are still a lot of discussions that are going on with TeamIndus regarding the launch.”
Do you know what is TeamIndus?
“The Dream That Became A Movement” TeamIndus is the only Indian team among the five finalists competing for the $30Amillion Google Lunar XPRIZE, a race is determined to stimulate and encourage engineers and entrepreneurs from around the world to develop low-cost methods of robotic space research.
Kiran Kumar at the gathering of students at the opening of the space technology gallery said, “You’re at the prime moment where India as a country is surging ahead. India has got every potential to be the number one in the world, for which each of you must put in your best efforts.”
“It is never too late to do anything in science and technology. We can always make a mark. When we put in our best efforts, no one can beat us,” the ISRO head asserted.
Well, since 1969 Indian Space Research Organisation has had many extraordinary milestones and they have created a standard par excellence for the world. And, with this announcement, they completely stand by their vision and concept to “harness space technology for national development and be the nation’s pride by hard work.”
Being an Indian I can proudly say “AAJ DHARTI PAR GUNJEGA TALIYAN, AA PHIR SE AASMAN NAPENGE HUM”
