‘Cabs to get into space': How this Indian startup wants to revolutionize satellite space travel

·1 min

India, a leading spacefaring nation, is working to boost private sector involvement in its space sector. The country has a history of impressive space achievements, including launching missions to Mars and the moon. While the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has traditionally dominated the space industry, government reforms are encouraging private startups to drive commercialization. Skyroot Aerospace, a homegrown startup, aims to capture the small satellite market by offering customized launches. The company plans to provide dedicated launches for satellites under 500 kilograms. The government’s support and funding will be crucial for the growth and competitiveness of Indian startups in the global space marketplace.
