SUCCESS STORY CAN CHANGE SPACE BUSINESS
15th February 2017 is a special day for Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). They will be sending 104 satellites on that day through PSLV 37. Three years back Russia had sent 37 rockets at a time. This time INDIA will be crossing 100 marks at a time. So the success of PSLV 37 launch can make Indian proud. They are just a step away from a World Record.
The business wing “Antrix” of ISRO said – We have specialized in sending satellites with a low cost. Thus out of these 103, excluding 1 of them, 88 satellites belonging to America and rests are from Germany and Netherlands.
After the success of Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) in 2014, the scenario has changed. India has become one of the leaders of low-cost satellite projects. As per the data, the annual budget of world’s satellite launching is 300 billion dollar business, and ISRO is targeting a healthy amount of it in their pocket. This is the way they can earn and reinvest in research and development.
A Glimpse of PSLV:
- PSLV is Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle
- First launched in 20th September 1993, which was a failure.
- The second launch was a success in 1994.

In this current world situation, where US President Donald Trump is constantly talking about foreign policy, India’s success can highlight a new path. The global leader NASA as well surrounded with Indian and Asian Brain. Are they willing to handover the baton to India? Are we really capable of penetrating the Space Business?
This reminds us few names Dr. Satish Dhawan and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and their dream. They had dreamt of being a leader in space technology with a human touch.
In India, we have worshiped Goddess Saraswati & God Vishwakarma for knowledge and its application. Now Goddess Lakshmi has taken the baton along with them. Congratulations to ISRO and all the scientists those who are part of this event.
