Making us feel proud : The ISRO

Dear Reader, 

As we all know that today Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has created a record with launching 20 satellites in a single mission from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh by Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-34. So guys let's know more about ISRO and its projects which include Chandrayaan-1, Mars Orbiter Mission and the most recent launching of 20 satellites in a mission etc. So here we go :-

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is the space agency of the Indian government headquartered in the city of Bengaluru. Its vision is to "harness space technology for national development, while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration". It has been formed in 1969 but the space research activities were initiated in our country during the early 1960’s when applications using satellites were in experimental stages even in the United States also. At that time, ISRO took the place of erstwhile Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR), which was established in 1962 by the effort of independent India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, who was a Scientist
