Starting with a budget of less than $4M for its first satellite in 1975, ISRO - 
Indian Space Research Organisation has made India a space power on a shoestring 
budget, achieving monumental feats like landing near the Moon’s south pole for 
around $70M! (Less than the cost of a Hollywood movie!) By developing in-house 
technology and smartly keeping mission scopes contained, ISRO ensures high ROI. 
 Thank you to all scientists and engineers who worked over many years to make 
this possible.

ADITYA-L1 is the First space based Indian mission to study the Sun to be 
launched on 2nd September 2023

The spacecraft shall be placed in a halo orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1) 
of the Sun-Earth system, which is about 1.5 million km from the Earth. This 
will provide a greater advantage of observing the solar activities and its 
effect on space weather in real time.

Details of the major science objectives of Aditya-L1 mission are at

It is important to thank the women scientists who took India into space (from 
India’s Mars mission to Moon mission to Sun mission)

India’s space mission will inspire millions of students from all over the world 
(including students from economically poor backgrounds) to STEM education and 
space science education.

This is the year of India’s G20 presidency.  Details at 
  India’s idea of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ is resonating across the 
world. This human-centric approach has been welcomed by all. India’s space 
mission is also based on this principle. India’s success belongs to all of 

Best wishes
