Kudos to ISRO for crossing an important milestone with the successful launch of weather satellite INSAT-3DR using a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle equipped with the indigenous cryogenic upper stage. Congratulations to all the scientists of ISRO for giving their heart out to make this operation successful. ISRO is one of the main arms of the government in its scientific experiments and achievements concentrates on its assigned job and proceeds from success to success inspite of some inevitable failures. Our ISRO scientists have made us proud by their hard work, dedication, and strong will power which show that our Indian scientists have now reached such platform that nothing is impossible. This launch marks the third consecutive success to the credit of ISRO and it has also crossed an important milestone with this successful launch of weather satellite INSAT-3DR using GSLV. ISRO is advancing in leaps and bounds in space technology. Our country has now become a world leader in cost-effective space launches and technologies. Time has now come when we go to the grass-root level and inspire the youngsters to think of a career in space research.
