In a galactic achievement of sorts, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will be helping the United States to launch a satellite in Space, Times of India reports.
With the launch of the satellite using India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), US will become the 20th country to sign up for a commercial launch by India.
ISRO chairman A.S. Kiran says that it is because India has a cost-effective technology.
Till date, India has launched 45 satellites for 19 nations with another 28 foreign satellite launches planned for the next two years.
ISRO is fast becoming the ideal go-to organization for space-related missions. At present, ISRO is gearing up for the launch of GSLV-Mark-II and plans to launch seven satellites by March 2016. And after the phenomenal success of the Mars mission, India has her eyes on Venus.
