Indian space agency ISRO is entering its 50th year on August 15, completing 49 years of its journey. ISRO was established in the year 1969. So far ISRO has successfully launched hundreds of its satellites. Apart from this, ISRO has also launched satellites of many other countries. The most important aspect of ISRO, the Indian Space Research Institute, is that till date it has not done any such work which is harmful to humanity.
ISRO never compromised with its doctrine and did not manufacture war material nor allow its organization to be used in war, while almost all the space research organizations of the world were formed to cater to the requirements of war, hence Indian Space Research Institute is an innovative space research institute in the world.
India's experience of space travel is very old. Many stories of space research and cruises are recorded in Indian religious mythology. It is written that Rama's father Dasharatha went to meet the moon. Apart from this, in the modern world also India introduced the technology to the world. When the rocket was first used as fireworks, which was a technological invention of neighbouring country China, this technology came into India because the exchange of ideas and goods through silk route between India and China in those days Used to be.
After this, a more developed form of this technique emerged during the time of Tipu Sultan. Tipu used rockets to defeat the British in the Mysore war. William Congreve was impressed by this experiment and developed the modern rocket technique in 1804 by developing this technique.
After being freed from the fetters of the British in 1947, Indian scientists and politicians planned and started the use and research and development of India's rocket technology in the security field. Being demographically large, India took the initiative in this direction and given the possibility of artificial satellites in the field of telecommunications, the Space Research Organization was established in India.
Dr Vikram Sarabhai and ISRO
The Indian space program is the concept of Dr Vikram Sarabhai, who is called the father of the Indian space program. He is known as scientific imagination and national hero. After Sputnik's launch in 1957, he recognized the utility of artificial satellites.
The first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who is considered the creator of modern India, in the year 1961 kept the space research under the supervision of Department of Atomic Energy. Homi Jahangir Bhabha, director of the Department of Atomic Energy, who was in charge of the entire Indian nuclear power program in those days and is called the father of the Indian nuclear program. In 1962, the Indian National Committee for Space Research was formed, in which Dr Sarabhai was appointed as the Chairman.
