How India came to SPACE AGE

with 2 comments

In the early 1960's …India was slowly awakening to the Space age….Although rest of the world was preparing to reach for the Moon…we were making our humble beginning…a small rocket took off from Thumba on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram, announcing the birth of the modern space age in India. That was when the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) formally came into existence. Over the years, TERLS have given birth to the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) and to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)…
Some Pics that will make every Indian proud…

Pics that say…we may not be as successful as the US or Russia…but we are there nevertheless…so watch out for us…

This was how the Rocket Cone was transported to the Launch Pad at Thumba !!
