The year 1957-1958 was designated as International Geo-physical year (IGY). The Indian program for the IGY had been one of the most significant ventures of Sarabhai. It exposed him to the new vistas of space science with the launching in 1957 of Sputnik-I. Subsequently, the Indian National Committee for Space Research was created, of which Vikram Sarabhai became Chairman.

Dr Sarabhai was a great visionary. His insight into the future of technology in our nation was great. On one hand he made the government adopt policies that would foster science and technology, and on the other, he led scientists to create India's own space programme
