He joined the Indian Air Force and progressed rapidly through the ranks. Rakesh Sharma, then squadron leader and pilot with the Indian Air Force embarked on the historic mission in 1984 as part of a joint space program between the Indian Space Research Organization and the Soviet Intercosmos space program and spent eight days in space aboard the Salyut 7 space station.
