Nambi Narayanan on his years at ISRO & the film ‘Rocketry’


Nambi Narayanan Live with Madhu Kishwar

S. Nambi Narayanan (born 12 December 1941) is an Indian aerospace engineer, who worked for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). He led the team which acquired technology from the French for the Vikas engine, used in the first PSLV that India launched.

He was awarded the Padma Bhushan, India’s third-highest civilian award, in March 2019.

In 1994, he was falsely implicated in an espionage case, arrested and physically tortured in custody.

The charges against him were disproven by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in April, 1996. The film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, based on his life, starring and directed by R Madhavan, was released in July 2022.
