The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman A S Kiran Kumar has stated that ISRO will launch two new meteorological satellites next month. These satellites would further improve weather forecast in the country and with the help of this weather changes that were observed every half an hour earlier would now improve to every 15 minutes observation. This would provide good quality atmospheric profiles over Indian landmass and adjoining areas.
The Indian Space Research Organisation is the space agency of the Indian government headquartered in the city of Bengaluru. It was formed on 15th August 1969 by the efforts of independent India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and his close aide and scientist Vikram Sarabhai. ISRO built India’s first satellite, Aryabhata in 1975.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the organization which will launch two new meteorological satellites next month?
2. Who is the Chairman of ISRO and in which year it was formed?
