It is one of the world’s largest government backed space agencies and is one of the most important reasons behind India’s rapid rise as a superpower. Since its inception in 1969, it has achieved countless milestones which are worth mentioning. The Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) series of satellites that were launched by it into space using indigenous Satellite Launch Vehicles (SLVs) is termed as the world’s largest constellation of satellites in operation for civilian purpose. The most remarkable of its feats is the launch of the ‘Mangalyann’ deep space exploration vehicle on November 5, 2013 at a fraction of the cost of those previously launched by its counterparts in the developed countries.
