For decades, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has been pioneering the space sector, achieving incredible feats and results. ISRO has been pioneering India’s bustling national space programs that are not capable of launching rockets to space, moon, or even mars — but it is also scripting history by sending satellites from foreign countries.
Continuing its tryst with space, ISRO is all set to take Bhutan’s INS-2B satellite into space by December this year. It is noteworthy that the development of the Bhutanese satellite is being underway by four Bhutanese engineers who are being trained by ISRO.
The space engineers from Bhutan’s department of information technology and telecom were trained at ISRO’s UR Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru for two months. The training covered theoretical and technical aspects and included visits to laboratories and test facilities.
