7. SpaceX

SpaceX is the first successful private space company, founded by Elon Musk in 2002. The company has recently gained a lot of popularity because of its low-cost rocket launch (making rockets reusable) and mars mission.
Since it’s a private company, their mode of funding, availability of resources, and ultimately their goals are different than other space organisations. When it comes to building satellites, SpaceX scores zero because they haven’t built any yet, and that is not even their objective.
Their primary aim is to reduce space transportation costs and enable the colonization of Mars. They have built the Falcon launch vehicle family and Dragon rocket-family, which both currently deliver payloads into Earth orbit. They are also trying very hard to send the first human to Mars by 2024.

Achievements till date:
First privately funded liquid propellant rocket (Falcon 1) reached orbit in 2008
First private company to send spacecraft to the ISS (Dragon in 2012)
First propulsive landing for an orbital rocket (Falcon 9 in 2015)
First successful reuse of an orbital rocket (Falcon 9 in 2017)
In 2017, SpaceX has been contracted by 2 private individuals to send them in Dragon on free return trajectory around the Moon. This might become the first lunar tourism by the end of 2018.

ISRO (for short) is the Indian government space agency, stands for the Indian Space Research Organisation. It was established in 1969 and their motto is “space technology in the service of human kind.” The agency has conducted various major operations on national as well as international level. They launched first moon mission rocket named as Chandrayaan-1 for moon data exploration.  Their overall year budget is $860 Million.
Moreover, on 24th September 2014, ISRO succeeds in sending spacecraft into Martian orbit on 1st attempt. The total expenditure for this mission was $75 million, making it the most cost-efficient Mars mission ever.
On February 15, 2017, ISRO launched 104 satellites in a single rocked named PSLV-C37 and made a world record. Of these 104 satellites, one is 714 kilogram main satellite for earth observation and 103 smaller “nano satellites” which weigh 664 kilogram combined. The government is pleased with ISRO’s progress and announced 23% raise in its annual budget.
On 5th June, they launched 640 ton GSLV Mk III rocket, carrying GSAT-19 communication satellite. The 141 foot rocket is allegedly as heavy as 200 full-grown Asian elephants. This mission takes India closer to the next generation launch vehicle and satellite capability.

Work Area:
Crew vehicle development
Technology demonstration
Astronaut training and other facilities

Major Accomplishments: 
Chandrayaan-1: First mission to moon
Mangalayaan: Mars Orbiter Mission
Recently, they launched PSLV-C36 which deposited a record 104 satellites into space.
