With the help of the satellite tracking system and other sources, we now know the exact location of GSAT-6A. Earlier, we were searching in the dark. But now we know the exact position of the satellite and keeping a close watch on its movement round-the-clock.

Power systems used in GSAT-6A and IRNSS-1I are totally different. The power system being used in IRNSS-1I is very simple and proven as all seven navigation satellites launched earlier are working successfully.

We will declare GSLV-MK3 as operational after two successful developmental flights. We will also focus on reduction in cost of satellites, and follow the road map for designing bigger launch vehicles.

It is difficult to specify a timeline for the semi-cryogenic engine as all sub-systems must be tested extensively before integration

Lot of work is in front of you (scientists). Definitely you will be doing it. I do not have any doubt on that... the missions we are planning this year, all 10 missions are very high profile missions

Chandrayaan-2 is going to land on Moon and rover will be roving on the Moon.

We are going to have one demonstration of human space programme technology development also (this year)

Isro is helping the Centre make the most of space technology for social-welfare and development projects. Explaining how it all started

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had held a meeting of all ministries some time back where he asked all departments to use the full potential of space technology for the betterment of the common man.

Isro currently has 42 satellites of different types in space. We are trying to synergise the data obtained from communication, navigation and remote sensing satellites so that it can be used in innovative ways for the societal good.

And now it turns out that somehow these swabs reveal bacteria that were absent during the launch of the ISS module. That is, they have come from outer space and settled along the external surface. They are being studied so far and it seems that they pose no danger

When I was a child, like many kids, I dreamt about flying to space, and then I started getting more serious about it.

Anton Shkaplerov (Russian Cosmonaut)

After six years of service at that air force base I was chosen to be a cosmonaut and this year is my eighth year as a member of a Russian cosmonaut team, and so soon I will be flying into space. This is the main landmark, so to say, of my career. 

Anton Shkaplerov (Russian Cosmonaut)

Well, you are right that a flight into space is not just a beautiful journey, and it’s so great to like experience zero gravity, but from the moment of your launch to the moment of your landing, everything is connected with danger.

Anton Shkaplerov (Russian Cosmonaut)

Bacteria that had not been there during the launch of the ISS module were found on the swabs. So they have flown from somewhere in space and settled on the outside hull.
