PM Narendra Modi via a virtual ceremony today is set to launch the Indian Space Association (ISA) at 11:00 a.m sharp. ISA is a premier industry association of Space and Satellite companies, which strives to be the united voice of the Indian space industry.
The program will address important policies, advocacy, and live interaction between stakeholders and government agencies.
Before the pandemic, the space agency had planned to carry out 20 launches alone in the year 2020-21, including the first automatic flight under the Gaganyaan mission, some of which were interrupted given covid circumstances.
The country’s first solar mission, originally set to be launched in 2020 is likely to be launched in the third quarter of 2022 as per a statement made by ISRO officials. India’s second space observatory is also scheduled to launch next year.
“At 11 AM tomorrow, 11th October, I will join the program to launch the Indian Space Association. I am glad to be getting the opportunity to interact with leading stakeholders in the sector. Those interested in the world of space and innovation must-watch tomorrow’s program,” PM Modi tweeted.
