ISRO Symbol of India’s Rise in Space World

NEW DELHI -The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) – the name fills each and every Indian with a sense of pride. The spectacular rise of ISRO since its inception in 1962 has made the world look up to India in the field of science and technology. It is the sheer dedication and diligent work of the scientists working at ISRO who started their journey from cycle and bullock cart and now are successfully launching satellites and rockets with almost great precision and success. 

ISRO- Missions successfully accomplished 

One of the first major accomplishments of ISRO was when it successfully launched the rocket. Among its other achievements are:

  • Successfully completed 109 spacecraft missions
  • 77 launch missions 
  • 10 students’ satellites
  • 2 Reentry missions
  • 319 foreign satellites

Budget allocation for ISRO Post 2014

One of the biggest reasons for the recent accomplishments of ISRO is the financial boost which it has got from the central government. Since 2014, the budget allocation increased from 50%  to almost 100%. Of late ISRO is working  closely with private players with an aim to increase their footprint. 

Upcoming Projects of ISRO 

Times have changed and now ISRO is moving at a very rapid pace in the sphere of high level of research and exploration of the Universe. The interesting part is that these researches which will be undertaken by Indian Space Research Organisation will echo the vision of Indian Prime Minister “be vocal for local,” since indigenous technology will be developed and used. Moreover a large number of Indians will be involved in many such upcoming projects. Some of the missions which ISRO is planning to complete by 2050 are: 

Project Name and Year 

ISRO Road map 2029
Name of Project Year and Objective of mission
Aditya2019-2020 To study Sun
Gaganyan2021 With Indian astronauts
X-ray polarimeter2021 to study X-Ray photons from
different celestial bodies at 600-700 km
MangalYaan 22024 to study atmosphere of Mars
Mission Venus2023 Understand Venus (400 KM)
Moon Mission2023 with Japan (lunar rover, lander)
Astrosat 22025 dedicated multi wavelength telescope
Space Station India’s own space station
ISRO Missions

It is important for ISRO to successfully complete these missions as in 2028, the international space will be decommissioned. With India emerging as leader in the space world, it might also top in showing the path to other countries as well. Moreover, treading on the path of growth in the space world will also help in reducing India’s dependency on Russia and France in different spheres.

    I suggest that there should be a preliminary class in Schools on ISRO. Class may be from 5th standard onwards up to 10 th Std. Further I suggest that the class may be 2 per week.
