INDIGENEITY OF INDIAN SPACE EXPLORATION!

India is the only country with a space program independent of the military, said former ISRO Chief Padma AS Kiran Kumar in the 3-day ISRO exhibition organised at JECRC University on Wednesday. In a conversation with First India, former ISRO Chairman, Dr Kiran shared about the indigeneity of Indian space exploration and the progress of upcoming projects like Gaganyaan, Chandrayaan-2, the Solar Probe, and more. “We’ve developed our own technology like ‘GSLV-3’ for the simple reason that one superpower manipulated the technology and didn’t allow other nations to work with it,” said Kumar.

Though due to geopolitical and economic constraints, ISRO is not yet focusing on developing support systems for the space station but has started grooming astronauts and planning manned missions in the form of Gaganyaan. Furthermore, ISRO has created 3 upgraded and economically feasible versions of the ‘CE-20’ cryogenic engine, which are going to be the backbone of upcoming Lunar Exploration missions and India’s maiden attempt to put astronauts in the orbit. Recently in October, the same CryoEngine was utilised in the ‘OneWeb’ project in collaboration with Bharti Airtel for launching 36 of their satellites in one go. This was a major commercial opportunity worth Rs1,000 Crores. Around 12,000 people participated.
