K Radhakrishnan; ISRO chief bids goodbye on MoM high

Bengaluru: Spearheading ISRO triumphantly through several milestones, chairperson K Radhakrishnan retired carrying the crowning glory of the Mission to Mars. Bidding farewell, space scientists described him an ‘iconic leader,’ saying that his exit left the agency at what ISRO on its Facebook called ‘at its most glorified pedestal ever.’ His tenure as ISRO chief was extended by 4 months this year till Dec 31. The Padma Bhushan-recipient was recently chosen as one of the top 10 scientific personalities in 2014 by Nature Science Journal. He joined the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre in 1972 and rose through the ranks - handpicked by Prof. Satish Dhawan, the then ISRO chief.
