The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is planning to conduct 19 missions, including 10 satellites and 9 launch vehicles, in the next seven months between September and March,

Calling it the “highest density period for launches”, ISRO chairman K Sivan said ISRO has never before launched two satellites within 30 days consecutively for months.

The plan will include the launch of India’s second moon mission Chandrayaan-2.

ISRO built India’s first satellite, Aryabhata, which was launched by the Soviet Union on 19 April 1975.

It was named after the Mathematician Aryabhata. In 1980, Rohini became the first satellite to be placed in orbit by an Indian-made launch vehicle, SLV-3. ISRO subsequently developed two other rockets: the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) for launching satellites into polar orbits and the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) for placing satellites into geostationary orbits.

Future plans of ISRO include the development of Unified Launch Vehicle, Small Satellite Launch Vehicle, development of a reUSAble launch vehicle, human spaceflight, controlled soft lunar landing, interplanetary probes, and a solar spacecraft mission.
