One more Milestone achieved By ISRO PSLV-C38 / Cartosat-2 Series Satellite LAUNCHED
Today around 9:30 am India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, in its 40th flight (PSLV-C38), is launch the 712 kg Cartosat-2 series satellite for earth observation and 30 co-passenger satellites together weighing about 243 kg at lift-off into a 505 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO). PSLV-C38 will be launched from the First Launch Pad (FLP) of Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota. This will be the seventeenth flight of PSLV in ‘XL’ configuration (with the use of solid strap-on motors).
After the great success of isro’s mission there are so many countries which used india’s space agency to set their satellites in space this time PSLV carries 29 nano satellites of 14 countries
The main highlight of the mission is
Cartosat-2 satellite which is a remote sensing satellite and it is similar in configuration to earlier satellites in the series with the objective of providing high-resolution scene specific spot imagery.
The day is not farer now when India will on the top of the list of satellites carrying vehicles.
