Prime Minister Narendra Modi has shared the breathtaking satellite images of Gujarat sent by the newly launched Oceansat-3 from space.

Sharing the crystal-clear coloured images, Mr. Modi said these advances in the world of space technology will help the country to better predict cyclones and promote our coastal economy.

Oceansat-3, codenamed EOS-06, sent the images of Gujarat’s Kutch, the Arabian Sea, and the Himalayan range on November 29, just three days after it was launched last Saturday.

In his Manni Ki Baat on November 28, Prime Minister praised the PSLV-C54 launch and mentioned how India launched a satellite for Bhutan, which was jointly developed with ISRO’s help.

Mr. Modi also talked about the exponential growth in the space sector of late due to the significant role played by private players and a new excitement among the youth of India who are thinking big and achieving big in the sector. (AIR NEWS)
