ISRO-CNES: taking the next steps together

Mr Jean-Yves Le Gall made a quick, quiet official trip to ISRO’s Bangalore headquarters just about a month after taking charge as president of France’s space agency CNES (Centre National d’Études Spatiales / National Centre for Space Studies.) Created in 1961, CNES, which is the fount of French and European space activities, has also given what is today the world’s leading commercial launch service vehicle, Ariane, among other technologies. In this short interaction ahead of his meeting with his ISRO counterpart, Mr. Le Gall, who has a place in the Space Hall of Fame, stresses the importance of an enduring Indian space connection.
