Onkar Batra, a Jammu student in the 12th grade, launched his nanosatellite with assistance from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
India’s first open-source satellite, InQube, was created by Batra, a student at BSF Senior Secondary School Jammu. A satellite developed under the auspices of the Paradox Sonic Space Research Agency is going to be launched with the help of ISRO. Speaking to the media, Batra claimed that the satellite, which weighs one kilogramme, was created using nanotechnology. According to him, numerous universities and academics abroad are engaged in similar research, so they decided to launch it into orbit with the aid of ISRO.
While this price reached the crores in other nations, the cost of its debut in India ranged from 20 to 80 lakh rupees. According to him, every satellite that is put into orbit has a specific mission.
“The satellite has two missions,” he continued. One is to determine whether such a lightweight satellite can function in space, and the other will measure the temperature to inform scientists of the upcoming weather.
Ram Nath Kovind, the President of India, presented Batra, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Batra Technology, with the National Bal Shakti Award for developing an interactive website for COVID-19.
Batra became the youngest webmaster in the world when he launched his first website at the age of seven, earning him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records (for males).
When he wrote his book “When the Time Stops” at the age of 12, he set a record for the youngest theoretical author in history. He established two businesses: United India Publishing in 2019 and Batra Technologies in 2018.
