ISRO received praise around the world


The Indian space agency has recently been earning praise around the world, with some reports suggesting that Chandrayaan-3’s budget was about half the cost of the space epic Interstellar.

What’s more, the heroes behind the mission, our ISRO scientists, are much more humble than most people in their exclusive, metropolitan suburb. Despite their enormous achievements, they choose to stand their ground and how.

They received no special treatment or financial incentives for working longer hours on this unique space project. Do you know what inspired them?

“Every evening at 5pm, a free masala dosa and filter coffee”: the inside story was recently revealed in a Washington Post editorial.

“We spend only on necessities,” said former ISRO director Madhavan Nair. “Our scientists work harder than any other scientist at any other company, in India or abroad.”

Venkateshwara Sharma, a mission scientist, was quoted as saying that ISRO had no financial incentive to provide staff for the success of the lunar mission: “We got around it by offering free masala dosa and filter coffee at 5pm every afternoon. Suddenly everyone was happy to stay longer.”
