Kalamsat first student satellite to be launched by new PSLV rocket on Jan 24 for space tests
NEW DELHI: In a major outreach programme this year, Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is going to launch several student-related and research projects to expand its space science activities to every nook and corner of the country.
Under the first outreach programme, Isro chairman K Sivan told the media here on Friday, “Isro is going to launch a ‘young scientist’ programme wherein three students from every 29 states and seven union territories will be selected based on their science projects. These students, mostly from Class VIII to IX classes, will be taken to selected Isro centres and enrolled for a one-month programme. The students will be trained and allowed to interact with senior space scientists. They will be taken to R&D laboratories and will also be given an opportunity to make small satellites. If their satellites are of good quality, they will be launched. He said, “All the expenses on the tour, stay and training of students will be borne by Isro. It will be on the line of Nasa student programme.” Sivan told TOI that “Isro will take out application to enrol students for this programme from March onwards”.
In another student-related project, Sivan said, “Isro is going to launch a student satellite, Kalamsat. PSLVC44, a new variant of PSLV, will carry Kalamsat and an earth imaging satellite, Microsat-R, of Defence Research and Development Organisation on January 24.” He said, “Kalamsat is the world’s lightest and smallest satellite built by a student start-up from Chennai and is named after former President A P J Abdul Kalam”.
关于另一个与学生有关的项目，Sivan表示说:“Isro将发射一颗由学生制造的卫星，Kalamsat。PSLVC44是PSLV系列火箭的一个新型号，将于1月24日携带Kalamsat和一颗地球成像卫星Microsat-R。“Kalamsat是世界上最轻、最小的卫星，由来自钦奈的学生创业公司制造，该卫星是以前总统阿卜杜勒·卡拉姆(P J Abdul Kalam)的名字命名的。”

"CubeSat" is the latest technology trend in the industry. ISRO could launch 110 of them in single trip, setting a world record. However most of the satellite launch orders are all going to SpaceX US company. Somewhere we are lacking marketing skills; US Government bullying is also there; hiring a US based marketing agency could help.

Modi''s speech in English delivered a few years ago at the ISRO Centre was superb, indepth, high grasp of national issues. None in Congress had the capacity, vision and capability to deliver such a message. We need Modi back to free India from the clutches of rampant Corruption, Chamchaism, Casteism and Cheapism prepetrated across India in Collusion with regional warlords.
