ISRO Launches SCATSAT-1 and Seven Other Satellites


There’s no wonder in the fact that our scientists keep scripting history. Yet again, ISRO successfully launched eight satellites from one rocket, in its longest and most complex mission, but this time into two different orbits.


European Space Agency’s Vega Space Rocket accomplished the twin orbit manoeuvre at Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota. P Kunhikrishnan, Director of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, said, “This is the first multiple orbit launch in a single PSLV mission using the PS4 restart method. The eight satellites ISRO launched includes, the weather satellite SCATSAT-1, two domestic and five foreign satellites.”

Indian scientists achieved the pro status post PSLV’s longest twin orbit mission, as many countries launched satellites in the single orbit even if multiple satellites are injected. Congratulations pour in praise of our great minds behind the ISRO’s longest ever launch mission. We salute you all!
