Talking about the show, Madhavan said, "Curiosity has brought humans to where we are today, and it will continue to do so. I thank Discovery India for this wonderful learning opportunity, and I feel honoured to have lent my voice to a project that could inspire future generations to embark on their quest to explore space".
Produced by Miditech Studios, 'India's Space Odyssey' features different experts from ISRO as well as space historians and researchers and most notably, the former Chairman of ISRO, Dr. G. Madhavan Nair.
The journey was commenced by Dr. Homi J. Bhabha and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai on India's quest to become a leader in space exploration and pioneering space technology.
