APJ

Homage to the great son of India

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India, passed away on July 27, 2015. More than a reputed scientist, administrator and visionary par excellence, he was an embodiment of simple living and high thinking, loved and respected alike by all. The nation will fondly remember his invaluable contributions to science and technology in various arenas of space, defence and atomic energy, which brought fame and reputation to the country amongst the international community. Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) proudly remembers his significant contributions in the successful development of India’s first ever launch vehicle, SLV3, making India a member of the elite club of the space fairing nations. VSSC owes to this humble and great leader for all success in its endeavours.
He also spearheaded the various missile missions of the nation and finally rose to be the first citizen of India. The nation honoured him with Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award. All through his life he was dedicated to ingrain the spirit of nationalism in the youth of India. Through several books and interactions he inspired the children to dream on the unreachable.
VSSC mourns the untimely death of this true national hero and prays that his soul rests in eternal peace.
