Space is a ruthless environment, and space business, a battle of resources and grit. Every time a big satellite or rocket goes up, an epic event of adventure and exploration is part of the fare. The last two weeks brought to light all of this and more. The Indian space agency’s heaviest satellite till date, GSAT-11, which was parked in French Guiana for a lift-off in mid-May, was recalled due to a snag. The only official communication to come out of Antriksh Bhavan in Bengaluru was that it was “rescheduled”, and that “the revised launch date will be communicated subsequently”.
