Indian women are touching new dimensions by breaking barriers in space exploration on the strength of their talent.

You remember the US space agency NASA’s Rove Preservation video landing on Mars early last month.

The video went viral on the Internet, with Indian-American aerospace engineer Swati Mohan happily tweeting the presence at Mars in the NASA control room.

Swati has mentioned by Nita Lal in an article on Indian women scientists in the South China Morning Post.

Apart from this, Neeta has also described the achievements of many other Indian women scientists.

Who has rise as successful astronauts, engineers, satellite launchers, missile developers, or as the head of these complex projects among the stars?

They also include Tacy Thomas, known as the ‘Missile Woman of India’.

Thomas, who has a Ph.D. in Missile Guidance, is the first woman scientist to lead an Indian missile project.

The 57-year-old Tacey, who was associated with the Agni missile project since its inception, designed this long-range missile to show direction.

She was also the project director of the Agni-4 project and successfully executed it.

Nita has given the next example of Indian women in space, aerospace engineer Ritu Karidhal Srivastava.

Nita wrote that Ritu, as deputy operations director of India’s first Mars orbiter Mission Mangalyaan in 2013.

Gave Ritu a chance to create history.

India became the first country in the world to orbit Mars in its very first aim.

Now on the shoulders of the season, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has made the mission director of another ambitious mission Chandrayaan-2.

Another shining name in Indian space history is that of Muthaiyya Vanita.

Vanita of Chennai has associated with ISRO as a scientist-engineer nearly three decades ago and now has the responsibility of project director of Chandrayaan-2 on her shoulders.

The number of successes is still small:


The article said that despite many historical successes in the name of Indian women scientists, critics say that India is yet to take full advantage of the potential of its women scientist community.

However, Neeta says that in this situation the country’s new science technology and innovation policy-2020 is expected to change.

This policy seeks to inspire women scientists through various initiatives.

The government has decided to set up 11 benches in the name of women scientists named in the 20th century.  Indian universities in various fields including cytogenetics, organic chemistry, social sciences as one of the first.

2.8 lakh scientists, engineers, and technicians are working in various Indian research institutes

Only 14 percent share of women in such a large number scientific community
