In a landmark achievement in 2023, India etched its name in the history of space exploration with the successful soft landing of the Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) Chandrayaan-3, proudly emerging as the first country to land near the Moon’s south pole.
Buoyed by the success of Chandrayaan-3, ISRO embarked on yet another journey that made history by launching Aditya – L1 satellite, the country’s maiden solar mission. It aims to explore the dynamics of the solar upper atmosphere, focusing on the chromosphere and corona and comprehending its extreme heat from a halo orbit around the first Sun-Earth Lagrangian point (L1), which is located roughly 1.5 million km from the Earth. The L1 point provides a stable position for observational purposes.
Fast forward year 2024, Aditya- L1 has successfully entered its final manoeuvre to reach its destination and injected into its final orbit.
The monumental success of both lunar and solar explorations underscores India’s strong-willed determination, cutting-edge technology, and prowess of collaborative human efforts. The accomplishments highlight the power of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model and the growing technological capabilities of Indian private players who significantly contributed to the success of these missions.
Recognizing the crucial role technological advancements of the manufacturing sector play in the economic growth of the nation, Indian manufacturing companies are making path-breaking innovations while prioritizing sustainable and green practices to limit their carbon footprint.
“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less-than-perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.”
