Who is Vikram Sarabhai?

Dr Vikram established ISRO in 1962, which was earlier known as the Indian National Committee for Space Research. Born in Ahmedabad on 12 August 1919, he matriculated from the Gujarat College before earning his doctorate from Cambridge University.

After coming back to India, he established the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) in Ahmedabad on 11 November, 1947. At this time he was just 28-years-old.

Dr Vikram successfully persuaded the Indian government of the significance of a space programme after the launch of Russian Sputnik. He said, "There are some who question the importance of space actissvities in a developing country. 

To us, there is no uncertainty of purpose... We should be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man & society."
