He might be just 19 years. But Hyderabad-based Kirtan Chand has already created ripples in the Indian space segment. He has already sent a satellite thanks to the support from the government and ISRO. His satellite was launched through PSLV-C 51 rocket.


The rocket took Brazil's Amazonia 1 along with 18 other satellites. The rocket was launched from Sriharikota's SHAR center. Kirtan and his team made the satellite named after Satish Dhavan. While Kirtan is 19, the rest of his team members happen to be less than 23 years of age.


Interestingly, Kirtan and his team made the satellite with indigenous materials within four months. Kirtan was known to create new things out of what was available to him and was a regular visitor to science fairs since his childhood. However, his parents share that being part of the Space Kids Organisation took him on a new path.


Kirtan is presently a student of Bharath Engineering College in Chennai and intends to develop more satellites and do scientific experiments to put India's name on the world map.
