  Starting from the early days of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) under the guidance
of Dr Vikram Sarabhai and Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam to leading the organization himself, G. Madhavan
Nair has had an eventful tenure at ISRO. Nair’s memoir is not just a chronicle of his own life, but
a tribute to the spirit of innovation and exploration that drives the Indian space programme.
This remarkable tale of determination, hard work and unwavering passion begins in a village in Kerala
from the halcyon days of pre-independent India. The sleepless nights in Thumba, the devastation
of failures and the subsequent learning, the exhilaration of successes—all of these are captured in
these pages with insight and candour.
Nair also describes, in terms accessible to the layman, his scientific and managerial contributions
to the launch vehicles from SLV-3, building the workhorse launcher PSLV, traversing the path to an
indigenous cryogenic engine, bringing an orbiting spacecraft back to Earth and even planting the
Indian tricolour on the Moon in Chandrayaan-1.
Challenging episodes are also described from an insider’s perspective. Nair describes the ISRO spy
case, along with addressing Nambinarayanan’s involvement in it. He also offers a comprehensive and
lucid discussion of the Devas Scam, where the battle is still ongoing.
Rocketing Through the Skies: An Eventful Life at ISRO is a compelling read that shares a philosophy
of life and work that led to great strides in ISRO’s progress over many crucial decades.
