Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has set many records in space

Started way back in 1960s, our space agency the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) (then INCOSPAR) has been breaking previous world records and setting new ones to make India a super power in the space technology. Its vision is to “harness space technology for national development while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration”. 

The founding father of Indian space research, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai recognized the need of a space agency and thus started working towards it. This year ISRO celebrated its 50th anniversary and these 50 years witnessed some huge achievements that we all should be really proud of.

Big hits of India In space

Since its inception, ISRO has set various world records. From launching rockets with payloads as low as 30kg to launching 104 satellites in one go, we’ve set all previous records to fire!

isro achievements
Aryabhata launch in 1975
  • ISRO built India’s first satellite, Aryabhata (after the great Indian mathematician), which was launched by the Soviet Union in 1975.
  • Rohini was the first satellite to be launched by an Indian made launch vehicle, SLV-3.
  • Highest number of satellites launched on a single rocket
  • On October 22, 2008 ISRO sent an unmanned Lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan-1 into space.
  • On November 5, 2013 India became the first nation to reach Mars in its maiden attempt and the first nation in Asia to reach the Mars orbit.
  • On February 15 2017, India set a world record by launching 104 satellites in one launch vehicle PSLV-C37.
  • On November 14, 2018 ISRO successfully launched its heaviest satellite GSAT-29 which aimed at providing better communication in remote areas.
  • On July 22, 2019 India launched Chandrayaan-2, its second moon mission whose aim was to conduct a soft landing on moon’s south polar region and it became world’s first nation to reach the closest to the south pole.

The milestones are many but they came with complementary setbacks. But that hasn’t deterred India from achieving new heights every day! As they say, the comeback is greater than the setback!

We are a leading name in the space field but still have suffered losses and have missed great targets but this can not affect the isro achievements.

Times which taught us to bounce back harder!

highest number of satellites launched on a single rocket
  • The first experimental flight for Rohini was successful but partially.
  • INSAT-1A, which was launched for a period of 7 years had to be abandoned after 18 months due to technical failures.
  • INSAT-2D became malfunctional after 4 months of launch.
  • GSAT-5P was not place into the orbit because of the launch vehicle couldn’t complete the mission.
  • The PSLV in its 41st flight suffered satellite separation within the heat shield thus making the mission unsuccessful.
  • Chandrayaan 2 was a highly successful mission but its lander lost contact just 2 kms before the landing, thus making the criticizers call it an unsuccessful mission but we Indians are proud of our brilliant scientists!

Science is all about trying out new things. A failure is not a stop to our success but just a test of our determination to succeed! As Thomas Alva Edison said “I haven’t failed, but I have found 10,000 ways that won’t work!” The biggest success of ISRO is that even when Chandrayaan-2 failed to spot Vikram Lander, the whole nation stood strong in support of their scientists and the sight of our ISRO’s chief crying made our hearts wrench!

This is the beauty of India, that we come together as a nation in times such as this and continue to move forward learning from our experiences. We’re proud of ourselves and proudly tell the world that we stand strong, no matter what! Yeh hai India!
