Satellite developed by Indian start-up to carry Bhagavad Gita to space


A satellite developed by an Indian start-up company SpaceKidz India will carry a copy of the Bhagavad Gita to space, a photograph of PM Narendra Modi along with the names of 25,000 individuals. The satellite is expected to be launched at the end of February and is named after Satish Dhawan, who was one of the founders of the Indian Space Programme.

The satellite will be sent to space as a part of the PSLV-C51 mission and is scheduled for February 28. It will also carry Brazil’s satellite Amazonia-1 as the primary satellite along with 20 co-passenger satellites. The co-passenger satellite includes a nanosatellite from the ISRO, three UnitySats by an academic consortium and a demonstration satellite by another start-up named Pixxel, incorporated as Syzygy Space Technologies.

Pixxel reportedly plans to create a constellation of 30 earth observation satellites by December 2022 which will provide global coverage every 24 hours. This is one of the two satellites developed by Indian startups that will be launched by the ISRO. ISRO had opened the space sector for private entities in June last year.

Dr Srimathy Kesan, the founder and CEO of SpaceKidz India, said that the mission is completely indigenous and has been developed in India only. She said that that a copy of the Bhagavad Gita would be sent to space on the lines of the space missions wherein holy books such as Bible were carried to space.
