Isro launches India's first hyperspectral imaging satellite along with 30 foreign satellites

SRIHARIKOTA: At exactly 9.58 am on Thursday, Indian Space Research Organisation's reliable workhorse PSLV rocket soared into the skies from Sriharikota's first launchpad carrying with it India's first hyperspectral imaging satellite (HysIS), an advanced earth observation satellite, and 30 foreign satellites. During the 112-minute-long mission, PSLV C43 first delivered India's primary satellite into the polar sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 630 km 17 minutes and 27 seconds after the launch and is now in the process of delivering 30 international co-passengers after descending to 504 km altitude in two batches.

Isro chairman K Sivan and the space agency's scientists broke into cheers as the earth observation satellite was injected into the polar sun-synchronous orbit. The Isro brass is keeping an eye on the mission until the last foreign satellite is delivered.

The 30 commercial satellites, including one micro and 29 nano satellites, are from eight countries. Of the total 30 satellites whose combined weight is 261.5 kg, 23 are from the US.

In another first for Isro, satellites from Australia, Colombia, Malaysia, and Spain are being flown for the first time by an Indian rocket. This launch is the second mission in a month as 15 days ago on November 17 Isro had successfully launched Gsat29 communication satellite from Sriharikota. +
