First of all Thank you, Jeff. Even I got curious after reading your
email. We know python.org advertises NASA using Python. 

Let us try to figure out the software components used at ISRO and

Deepak, agree with your comment on their website. Ignoring that, do
not underestimate the projects which are going on at ISRO or IIAP and
their involvement with Free Software.

I happened to meet the principal scientist of Tauvex ( 
http://tauvex.iiap.res.in ), its impressive the kind of work that is
going on. 
I am of the thought, if you check more projects then you could find
folks using Python, its a good probablity.
