Mars has major role in evolution of life in earth: ISRO Chairman

Mars has played a major role in evolution of life on earth, Dr. K. Radhakrishnan, Hon'ble Chairman, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) & Space Commission and Secretary, Department of Space, Govt. of India said during an interaction session with the students of KIIT University on January 23, 2013. Prospects and the way forward for India's space programme is “exciting and challenging”, he said, informing that the country's next mission is Mars orbiter mission.

Elaborating on ISRO's plans, Dr. Radhakrishnan said it is focusing on satellites and launch vehicles. “The first navigation satellite is scheduled to be launched by June this year. Chandrayan - I is a major step towards lunar and planetary exploration. The next major objective of ISRO is to have GSLV rocket, which is scheduled to be launched by May”, he said. India is planning to have a navigation satellite system, called Indian Regional Navigation Satellite, planned in 2013, he informed, adding that six more such satellites would be launched in eighteen months.

Space is going to be the fourth dimension of the world, Dr. Radhakrishnan told KIIT students. While most of the scientific organizations are involved in researching about life and evolution, ISRO also puts importance on study of moon, mars and the sun. The environment of Moon and other planets, including Mars, are the missions of future. It is projected that by 2030 or 2040 Moon would be an intermediate station for moving to Mars.

Talking about the space enterprise, he said several satellites are performing important functions in communication, medication and global processing system. The turnover of space enterprises in the world is about 177 billion US $ in 2012-2013. While US, Russia, China and others are into high technology including putting human beings in space, India's focus for last 50 years is essential application oriented programme, in which it has become a role model, he informed, adding that India is among top six space faring countries in the world.

Briefing about the academic research on Indian space programme, Dr. Radhakrishnan said that several academic institutes join with ISRO for development of multi disciplinary technology. Academic institutions would continue to play even greater role in future. Launch of a satellite is a team work, in which more than 2,000 people are involved, he told KIIT students, while assuring them that a bright future awaits those interested in the space programme.

Visiting KIIT University and Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) is a memorable day, Dr. Radhakrishnan said, expressing his satisfaction. KIIT is more than a national university, while KISS is bringing about a social revolution in the process of development of tribal people through education, he added.
