After Chandrayaan-2, India will send man to space by December 2021: Isro chief
Isro chairman K Sivan on Saturday said that by December 2021, the first Indian will be sent to space on indigenously-made rocket.
Sivan told the gathering, “Dr Kalam said your dream or idea must not make you sleep. Get inspired by great leaders, but do not try to emulate them. You have to come out with original solutions and not a copy of somebody else’s idea. If you want to become a Dr Kalam, do not chase his hair style. You follow his idea and the message he gave”.
The space scientist said while the country may be perceived poor by many people, it occupies the first position in the world for sending remote sensing satellites.
Despite the progress made over the last half a century, there are many unsolved issues of poverty and hunger, health and sanitation and clean drinking water, he said and called upon IITians to come forward to help solve them.
