After the ISRO, Moon lander crashed, in 2019, Indian space research teams are gathering and revolutionizing the whole space research system in India. With these new blooming Startups with high visions, the future of India’s space research seems to be bright. Let’s get more into these Indian Space Startups:
1. BELLATRIX AEROSPACE:
This startup was founded in 2015 having headquartered at Bangalore India. Their key vision is to make affordable access to Space. with their nanosatellite launch vehicle named CHETAK to be launched in 2023, which is a two-stage vehicle, will be reusable and constructed with all-carbon composite.
