Skyroot: The private firms helping India aim high in space

When questioned about Skyroot Aerospace, the Indian space-tech start-up he co-founded with a friend in 2018, Naga Bharath Daka responds as follows.

He and fellow engineer Pawan Chandana founded Skyroot, a company that manufactures rocket parts for satellite launch vehicles, after leaving their secure government jobs at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the nation's government-run space agency, in response to the promise the space sector held for them.
