Thumbs up ISRO does India proud yet again: India successfully launches PSLV



ISRO bounces back to success track!
PSLV puts 4 satellites into orbit


Package includes Space Recovery Capsule to validate Earth Re-entry Technology to be used in the moon probe later this year!


Sriharikota, Jan. 10 (PTI): India today added yet another feather to its cap in space technology when its tenth Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C7) put four satellites into orbit.

The PSLV-C7 blasted off majestically into space at 9.24 am from the spaceport at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) here, 160 km from Chennai.

The successful launch comes six months after GSLV-FO2 broke up, deviating from its path 65 seconds after take off.
PSLV C-7 carries four satellites - the 680 kg Indian Remote Sensing Satellite CARTOSAT-2, the 550 kg Space Capsule Recovery Equipment (SRE-1), Indonesia's LAPAN-TUBSAT and Argentina's six kg nanosatellite, PEHUENSAT-1.

CARTOSAT-2 is the 12th in the Indian Remote Sensing Satellite series and carries a state-of-the-art panchromatic camera, with a spatial resolution of one metre and a solid state recorder with a 64 giga byte storage capacity.
Data from this satellite will find application in cartography at the cadastral level, urban and rural infrastructure development and management, apart from Land Information System and Geographical Information System (GIS).
CARTOSAT-2 was placed in a 635 km high polar Sun Synchronous Orbit.
SRE-1, a joint effort between the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre and ISRO Satellite Centre, is intended to demonstrate the technology of orbiting platform for performing experiments in microgravity conditions and recovering the same after completion of the experiments.

The SRE-1 takes India into an elite club of countries that have satellite re-entry technology. The space flight will stay in orbit for between 13 and 30 days and is expected to splash down into the Bay of Bengal for recovery.

It will provide important technology inputs in navigation, guidance and control during the re-entry phase, hypersonic aero-thermodynamics for reusable thermal protection system, recovery through deceleration and floatation, besides acquisition of basic technology for reusable launch vehicles.

LAPAN-TUBSAT is an Indonesian earth observation satellite and a technology demonstrator for control systems. It carries two Charge Coupled Device (CCD) cameras with a ground resolution of 5m and 200 m respectively.

It also carries an experiment for message store and forward system.
The Argentinian nanosatellite, PEHUENSAT-1, will serve the educational, technological and scientific fields. It is intended to gain experience for designing more complex missions.

If there is one Indian govt. organization that has consistently made us proud, its ISRO. Congratulations to all the scientists and personnel that made this possible and good luck on the re-entry technology!

Great job ISRO!!

What do you supply to ISRO? Can you share with us or will you have to kill us if you reveal the secret?

Talking Re: ISRO does India proud yet again: India successfully launches PSLV

From BR forums, a parody of reaction to this launch by pakjabis:

Quote:

Pakistan is happy India is catching up

NSN (Islamabad): A brief communiK from the President General was faxed to us. We reproduce the text below:

We have noted India's recent "achievement" of launching another satellite. India's constant efforts to prove herself the equal of Pakistan, unfortunately, are becoming less and less worthy of Pakistani attention. Pakistan, as a sovereign, highly honoured, and doubly dignified nation has passed beyond the stage of maintaining an active interest in our neighbour's various technological programmes. One would like to take this opportunity to prerogate that Pakistan is not in the least interested in any manner of "competition" with India. The world has clearly seen that Pakistan is, if not light years, at least light months ahead of India in every field. We would gently remind our neighbour that we have more Field Marshalls to look after our fields. There is nothing left for Pakistan to prove, and as the Qaid said, "What they do proves nothing, and we have nothing to prove. I approve this message, Inshallah."


This is NSN.

SRE comes back home successfully!

India brings back orbiting satellite to earth for first time

Bangalore, Jan. 22 (PTI): In a pathbreaking event heralding its arrival as a space power with capability to recover an orbiting satellite, India today successfully brought back a spacecraft to earth, giving a new impetus to the proposed manned mission to space in the next decade.

A 550-kg recoverable space capsule that was launched by a home-built rocket on January 10 returned to earth's atmosphere, splashing down in the Bay of Bengal, about 140 km east of Sriharikota coast at 9.46 am, as planned, Indian Space Research Organisation officials said.

As it re-entered the earth's atmosphere, after initial aerodynamic braking, a parachute system reduced the touch down velocity, and a floatation system kept the capsule, named Space Capsule Recovery Experiment (SRE-1), afloat.

A Coast Guard helicopter located the spot, and a team drawn from Coast Guard and Navy was soon at the job of retrieving the spacecraft, which they did, and uploaded to a ship "Sarang" to be taken to the spaceport of Sriharikota via Ennore Port.

"We are all thrilled," an ISRO scientist said, echoing the sentiments of India's space agency which had worked on the project in the last 3-4 years.

An ISRO official termed the success in demonstrating spacecraft recovery technology capability as "important beginning" in India's ambition to put a man in space some years from now. "This is the first time that ISRO has recovered a satellite put in orbit."

Great job by ISRO yet again!

Re: ISRO does India proud yet again: India successfully launches PSLV

I think the programme would have been a super duper success if that satellite had fallen on 'Writers Building' instead of in the Bay Of Bengal.

Given our history with space missions, we should now aim for manned space mission. China has done that already!
What worth does it add? Maybe not today, but soon...

I don't see the point of putting a man on moon... what does it prove or achieve? just for the sake of it why waste millions of Rupees...
