Having mastered the art of fabricating its own space launch vehicles and satellites for a range of purposes, India has planned to launch at least a satellite every month, Mylswamy Annadurai, Director, Indian Space Research Organisation’s Satellite Centre, Bengaluru, has said. ddressing a function organised here on Sunday by Sterlite Copper to honour the SSLC and Plus- Two
toppers from the district, Dr. Annadurai said nations across the globe that wanted to stamp their mark in the space were looking up to India in awe after the country successfully executed Chandrayan and Mangalyan in its maiden attempt even as superpowers like the United States and Russia, who had gained vast experience in this field, had encountered failures in the initial stages. India, which was now fabricating 21 satellites for a range of purposes including communication, remote sensing and navigation, had set a target of launching a satellite every month into its predetermined orbit with its own launch vehicle, Dr. Mylswamy said.
