Space Technology: India is making rapid progress in the sphere of science and engineering. Gone are those times when this nation was satirically known as the land of Snake Charmers. Nowadays, native Indian rockets as large as multi-storied buildings are seen roaring in heavens piggybacking bulky satellites. This obviously indicates that this Indian space program is currently self-reliant and completely ready to learn more about the dark secrets of the world. For several decades just two players have challenged themselves in the game of spaceflight capabilities. The former Soviet Union and the United States fought a long and pricey battle to emerge triumphant in a world of science and engineering.
Originally, India was lagging behind many nations in space research, but ISRO was able to cross all obstacles. The reluctance of USA and Western European countries to provide innovative technology convinced India to contour its military and space applications. Though India is still to launch its astronaut in space on a national launch car, ISRO has achieved a number of landmarks. The Indian space program is very complex and economic. The scientific community around the world lauds proficiency and caliber of Indian space research bureau. First Indian interplanetary mission The Mars Orbiter Mission is popularly famous for its shoestring budget. Astonishingly, the World was amazed to note that India achieved this extraordinary feat in its maiden effort.
Interestingly, Chinese and Japanese effort to explore Mars couldn’t succeed. The Indian space program is popularly ambitious and quite promising. India plans to release its astronaut on the homegrown rocket in this imminent future, associated technology is in a testing phase. ISRO has already demonstrated its might by starting more than a hundred satellites aboard a single rocket. As India is on this verge of becoming an economic superpower, it can’t afford to lag behind in this territory of space engineering. Arch rival China is urgently creating new cutting-edge technology to maintain its lead. ISRO has a brilliant workforce, vast study facilities, potent launch car systems and backing of strong Indian economics that make it a prominent belligerent of the Asian space race.
Undoubtedly, ISRO has successfully crossed numerous obstacles despite international sanctions. This space agency has resisted the performance of other space contenders. Interestingly, many nations like the United States, Israel, China, France, Russia, UK, Ukraine, South Korea, Japan, etc. Have expressed interest in cooperating and commence joint research programs. ISRO has successfully launched over two hundred satellites of foreign agencies. Affordable launching cost, reliable release vehicles are the two instrumental factors bring many contracts for ISRO from foreign agencies.
