New Delhi: Google on Monday paid tribute to Dr Vikram Sarabhai, the father of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) by dedicating a doodle to mark his 100th birthday anniversay. The doodle has been illustrated by Mumbai-based guest artist Pavan Rajurkar.
Sarabhai is an award-winning Indian physicist, industrialist, and innovator. However, he is most fondly remembered for the establishment of ISRO.
Hailing Dr Vikram Sarabhai as a stalwart of Indian science, President Ram Nath Kovind tweeted: “Remembering Dr Vikram Sarabhai on his birth centenary. Considered the father of our space programme, Dr Sarabhai was a stalwart of Indian science. He built several institutions; mentored & inspired generations of scientists. We cherish his services and his legacy.”
Dr Sarabhai established the Indian National Committee for Space Research in 1962, which was later renamed to ISRO. It was in his honour that the ISRO had named its major space research centre in Thiruvananthapuram as the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre.
