India launches Cartosat 2 Series satellite, 29 others

The 28 global customer satellites are being launched as part of the commercial arrangements between Antrix Corporation Limited (Antrix), a Government of India company under Department of Space (DOS), the commercial arm of Isro and the worldwide customers.

Nellore: Putting aside the doubts over its performance, following the failure of its earlier flight (PSLV-C39) in August past year, Isro's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle was back with a bang, enhancing confidence of scientists on its prowess. "ISRO is starting 2018 with the successful launch. all satellites have been released".

The successful orbiting of the satellites by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C-40 comes four months after the Indian space Research Organisation's mission to launch backup navigation spacecraft IRNSS-1H onboard PSLV-39 ended in a rare failure.

The launched satellites include the weather observation Cartosat-2 series, two more satellites from India and 28 other nations. Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed ISRO scientists for the successful PSLV C-40 mission. Modi stated in another tweet. The Indian microsatellite would be orbited after about 90 minutes following the re-ignition of the fourth stage (following placement of the 30th satellite in its orbit), ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar said. India will use its latest satellites for better border surveillance and obtaining high resolution images of the earth.

Recognized by experts, the Indian space program is considered one of the most efficient and active in the world for its quality and quantity, despite having much less budget than other similar projects.

During the last PSLV launch we had problems, today what has happened proves that the problem was properly addressed and rectified.

The 31 satellites were placed in two different orbits in one mission, in one of the keenly watched missions that comes after a failed launch in August a year ago.

The launch of the second national probe to the Moon: Chandrayaan-2 (lunar vehicle, in Sanskrit) in March 2019, is among the most striking proposals.
