ISRO will create history again today, Oceansat-3 and 8 nano satellites will be launched from Sriharikota
Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch Earth Observation Satellite - 06 (EOS-06) and eight nanosatellites today. According to the space agency, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C54) will launch the satellites at 11.56 am from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. EOS-6 is a third-generation satellite in the Oceans series of satellites.
The Indian Space Research Institute (ISRO) is now going to create a new history after launching the private sector mission in the past. ISRO is going to launch the mission PSLV-C54/ EOS-06 today. ISRO is all set to launch the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in its last mission of the year. The PSLV-C54 mission will lift off from the first launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota with nine satellites, including 8 nanosatellites. The mission will be launched from Sriharikota at 11.46 am today. Its 25-hour countdown started on Friday (November 25) at 10.46 am.
Explain that this will be the 56th flight of PSLV from India and the fifth and final launch of the vehicle in 2022. The 44.4-metre rocket will launch with a lift-off mass of 321 tonnes, with the primary satellite being the Earth Observation Satellite-6. Also dubbed Oceansat-3.
The primary payload of the mission is Oceansat-3, the third-generation satellite of the Oceansat series. The Oceansat series of satellites are Earth observation satellites dedicated to oceanographic and atmospheric studies. Apart from this, this satellite is capable of forecasting marine weather, so that the country is prepared in advance for any cyclone.
It is said about this mission is one of the longest missions done by ISRO scientists. PSLV-C54 will engage the rocket to change orbits using the two-orbit change thrusters (OCT) used in the launch vehicle. The Earth observation satellite will be separated into Orbit-1 while the passenger payload will be separated into Orbit-2.
