UNLOCKING THE FINAL FRONTIER

AMID DOUBTS, QUESTIONS, AND CONCERNS OF A NATION barely standing on its feet at the time post-independence but aiming for the sky, India's space programme started to take its first steps over five decades ago. However, with the clear vision of its founding fathers toward national development and making the country capable as well as dependent, India's space programme took off. Collaboration, self-reliance, ambition, and successful strides have been constant pillars of India's space programme. Through the achievements of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the country's space programme has consistently kept India among the elite group of space powers globally. What started as INCOSPAR culminated into ISRO in 1969 aptly on independence day and has managed to stand tall in making India self-reliant and independent through scientific advancements, international collaborations, strategic actions, socio-economic benefits, and global recognition, all the while defying limits and propelling India to the forefront of the global space community. Over the years, ISRO's unwavering pursuit of scientific advancements and technological innovations has not only elevated India's standing in the world but also transformed it into a beacon of self-dependence in space technology.
