ISRO is our Organization which send's satellite's to the space for the need's of spatial information and many more communication purpose need's

So simply we can say it as a Space agency of India to kick satellite's for our need's

going back to history cycle (INCOSPAR) Indian National Committee for Space Research was found in "1962" and it took its evolution or its modern form in & as "ISRO" this was found & developed by Vikram Sarabhai.

so He is the first Chairman of "ISRO" Vikram Sarabhai, Note it down its a "General knowledge Note".

Sivan sir was popularly known as "Rocket man" and his major contributions in many thrusts and booster's and majorly in "Cryogenic engine's" for Indian space Research Program.

A common phenomena in birth right, He is a son of Farmer and made is studies in Tamil medium Government school(Sarakkavilai) & later in Vallankumaranvilai, in kanyakumari district

He was the only Graduate from his family "pride of family

Later Sivan graduated with a bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering from Madras institute of technology in 1980, Then he went on hunt of Master's in Aeronautical branch in Indian institute of technology(Bangalore) in 1982 and started working in ISRO , later on stages he earned Doctoral degree form Indian Institute of technology (Mumbai) in 2006.
