New Delhi, Sept 9 (RDI IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday congratulated ISRO, on being conferred the Gandhi Peace Prize for 2014.
Congratulations to ISRO on being conferred the Gandhi Peace Prize. This is a fitting tribute to the hard-work of generations of scientists, he said. Accomplishments of ISRO have contributed greatly towards peace and progress of humanity, the Prime Minister said. ISRO is one such Indian organization, which has nurtured, developed and demonstrated world class capabilities. Even as it has sought to encompass the globe and reach for the stars, it has remained rooted in its core mission of national regeneration and improving the life of the common man, a goal set for the nation by Mahatma Gandhi. It has built an indigenous Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) which is one of the most sought after launch vehicles in its class across the world. It has achieved 29 successful flights of the PSLV launching not only Indian satellites but also 45 satellites of 19 other countries. The recent launch of five satellites of the United Kingdom marked a new milestone in demonstrating the performance and reliability of the PSLV. ISRO has also successfully built the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) with an indigenous cryogenic engine. Scripting space history on September 24, 2014, India successfully placed the Mars Orbiter around Mars. It is the only country in the world to achieve this feat in its first attempt and the fourth space agency in the world to reach Mars. It makes us even more proud that this mission was achieved at a fraction of the cost incurred by other successful nations.
