One such space startup — a rarity in India’s otherwise consumer internet focused startup ecosystem — is Hyderabad based Skyroot Aerospace. Skyroot says, that it has successfully completed the test of its upper stage rocket engine-Raman, a first for any private space player in India. No better day than Dr. Vikram Sarabhai’s birthday to announce our successful test firing of our Vikram-1 Launch vehicle’s upper stage Engine-Raman. Well, Skyroot isn’t one to shy away from a challenge, and says that its Raman engine is capable of multiple restarts. 31.5 crores in external capital, has the potential to begin a new era in India’s space exploration.
