Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chairman K Sivan on Thursday commended the central government for initiating reforms that unlock Indian potential in the space sector. He also said that the next campaign of PSLV-C51 will be very special for us. It will be special for the whole country. Following the successful launch of PSLV-C50 carrying communication satellite CMS-01, Sivan was addressing the scientists at the Mission Control Center.
He said that Anand Satellite has been developed by Pixel India, a start-up company. It will be launched soon and with this the entry of private sector in space exploration will start. He further said, two other satellites ‘Satish set’ and ‘unit set’ will also be sent soon. The Satish set has been developed by Space Kids India, while the unit set has been built by a group of universities.
Explain that in June this year, the Union Cabinet had decided to allow the private sector to explore space. The private sector has also been allowed to participate in expeditions sent for planetary exploration. Sivan had then said that allowing the private sector to undertake space activities such as building rockets and satellites and providing launch services would prove to be a significant improvement.
