HarperCollins Publishers India is pleased to announce the publication of ISRO: A Personal History by R. Aravamudan, Gita Aravamudan

A highly readable deep dive into the multi-layered history of ISRO and its brave pioneers by one of its first rocket scientists.
ISRO pioneer R. Aravamudan narrates the gripping story of the people who built India’s space research programme and how they did it – from the rocket engineers who laid the foundation to the savvy young engineers who keep Indian spaceships flying today. It is the tale of an Indian organisation that defied international bans and embargos, worked with laughably meagre resources, evolved its own technology and grew into a major space power. Today, ISRO creates, builds and launches gigantic rockets which carry the complex spacecraft that form the neural network not just of our own country but those of other countries too. This is a made-in-India story like no other
