About the Book

On September 7, 2019, Indians were glued to their televisions, watching the Chandrayaan-2 lander begin its descent to the surface of the moon. Everything was going well and India was set to become the fourth country to land on the moon. One man was an integral part of this space journey—Dr Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai. Born in 1919, Sarabhai was an Indian physicist and astronomer who initiated space research and helped develop nuclear power in India. He is also regarded as the Father of the Indian Space Program. The book is an attempt to nourish scientific temper in children from a young age.
