Year Wise Satellite Launches In The Indian Space Odyssey

With every new exploration, the desire to know more about space grows, developing it as a sector of research and development at a geo level. India’s space growth continues to support economic development and has helped us to build a broad scientific and technical infrastructure.

1963 is the year that is marked as the birth of the modern space age in India when a small rocket took off from Thumba in Kerala. Since then, India has been aiming for various other missions and has honestly achieved a lot.

Aryabhatta was India’s first satellite built by ISRO and launched in the year 1975 by the erstwhile Soviet Union. In 1979, the infographic shows the failed attempt to launch SLV-3 carrying Rohini into space orbit. Soon after, the launch was successful when they tried again next year.

APPLE was the first experimental communication satellite with a successful launch in the year 1981. It provided an experience in building and operating a payload experiment with a stabilized communication satellite.

Soon after this, there were many other Indian and foreign satellites that were launched by ISRO and they highlighted India’s journey to a self-reliant space program. In 2018, India made history by launching 9 successful satellites in just one year, along with many foreign satellites.
