While one hand of this country is busy in saving cattle out there, another side embodies the institutions like the ISRO which has recently celebrated an achievement that made the entire nation proud. And, that as well right in time when the 68th republic day is knocking on doorsteps!
Today, they launched their 100th satellite, the Cartosat-2 Series, into space along with satellites from 6 other countries.
Here’s the moment the rocket, PSLV-C40 took off:
PM Narendra Modi tweeted on this:
My heartiest congratulations to @isro and its scientists on the successful launch of PSLV today. This success in the New Year will bring benefits of the country’s rapid strides in space technology to our citizens, farmers, fishermen etc.
Kinda anti-climactic? But well… that’s him for all! Also, the rest of internet had a lot to say about this memorable moment.
Here’s a gathering of some of the best tweets that we could find:
Congratulations ISRO. Congratulations India. A matter of great pride for India and its scientist community. I have always said that India has the best talent in the world. We only need to give them freedom, resources and no political interference https://twitter.com/timesofindia/status/951692249447915520 …
The ISRO’s achievement of launching 100 satellites is historic in many ways and a big landmark in India’s journey into the space. The scientists at ISRO have carved a special place in the astronomical space.
