It is the Indian AstroSat. Furthermore, this works as a space observatory. However, it is 10 times smaller than other famous ones.
A premier example includes the Hubble telescope. Nonetheless, India’s space agency has made brilliant efforts to be put on the global charts.
Currently, India is not that popular for manufacturing nano satellites. However, the chairman of ISRO once revealed something.

Once again, the Indian space agency surprised everyone.
