Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao on Saturday expressed happiness over successfully placing into the space orbit the two Nano satellites launched from Sriharikota by Telangana-based Dhruva Space Tech, a Hyderabad-based private start-up.
CM KCR said that the successful launch of two nano satellites - 'Thybolt 1 and Thybolt 2' sent by the Hyderabad start-up company along with ISRO's PSLV-C54 is a milestone in the history of the country's enterprising startups.
The Chief Minister described that the launch of the satellites by the private sector as a great success.

The Chief Minister said that, with these experiments, Hyderabad start-up companies opened doors of new opportunities in the Indian space sector.
He stated that the success of the recent launch of "Vikram S" and Saturday's launch of "Thybolt 1 and Thybolt 2" gave a good start to the launch of private rockets aimed at increasing India's share in the global space economy.
The Chief Minister said that these two successful satellite experiments brought laurels to Telangana worldwide.
He claimed that Hyderabad's prominence as a start-up city has doubled through these satellite launches.
He called it just a beginning and exuded confidence that the T Hub, which has been started with an aim of bringing out the talent of enthusiasts and creating opportunities in the fields of science and technology and industry, will achieve many more milestones in the future.
CM KCR congratulated the representatives of 'Skyroot' and 'Dhruva' space start-ups who, with the encouragement of T-Hub, created satellites through their start-up companies and successfully launched them.
He called on the youth to work with the same spirit to spend their intellectual wealth for the country's progress and work for India development.
The Chief Minister made it clear that the Telangana government will always stand by the young men and women who are showing their talent to the world and making their brilliant ideas a reality through their start ups.
He congratulated young leader and state IT and Industries Minister K.T. Rama Rao and senior officers and staff of T-Hub for working hard to bring out the talents of the young men and women who are passionate about science and technology.
