Indian Space Research Organisation, the national space agency of the Government of India, that is acquainted with space research and planetary science was found in 1969 and recently has pioneered the Mars Orbiter Mission, and now India becomes the fourth country in the country to reach the Martian orbit.
ISRO completed the Mars orbiter mission in the first attempt and thus India became the first country to accomplish so ,that too in a very small budget. India’s first lunar mission, Chandrayaan that was launched in 2008, made India the 4th country to host its flag on the moon.
ISRO was established eight years after Pakistan’s SUPARCO yet India has launched 65 satellites where Pakistan stands at 2. ISRO set a new world record in Feb 2017, launching 104 satellites in a single mission with the help of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). 96 of the 104 satellites belonged to the United States.
