The ISRO chief inspired them to take up calculated threat as it might safeguard them from ‘absolute failure.’ “You might fail, however every failure would supply a worthwhile lesson. I can say with nice confidence that India’s area programme has been constructed on spectacular failures and every failure has resulted in enhancements in our system”, he stated.
“Innovation comes with a excessive threat of failure. You might be referred to as loopy. Preliminary end result of innovation could also be imperfect. You have to notice that you’re not failing means you aren’t attempting something laborious”, he added.
