A Rocket And 31 Satellites Have Been Launched Into Orbit By India

The Indian Space Research Organisation successfully launched a rocket together with 31 satellites into space on November 29th.

On November 29th, a new Earth-observation satellite along with 3o smaller satellites of eight other countries was successfully placed into orbit by India.

From the Sriharikota spaceport (southern India), The rocket of The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) was launched officially. Meantime, The Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite (HysIS), nearly 380 kilograms, aims at studying the surface of the Earth in "visible, near infrared, and shortwave infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum," ISRO stated.

It will allow identifying different objects from space.

Rocket Launching

"On the journey ahead, the road is full of traffic for us," Kailasavadivoo Sivan, ISRO chairman, said. He was congratulating scientists at the launch center.

The ISRO is expecting a space program. According to SpaceFlight Now, The launch in the late of November was the second in 2 weeks. It followed a distinct start earlier this month. It was the sixth space launch of Indian in 2018, and also the fourth PSLV flight this year.

Besides, The ISRO has a range of missions to accomplish, including launching 5,854-kilogram GSAT-11 on 28th, and a second moon mission in next January 2019.

Since 1999, over 250 satellites from 28 countries have been launched by The ISRO.

Last February, it was the ISRO that broke records by launching 104 satellites into orbit simultaneously while using just one single rocket.

It appears that the rocket launching pace does not slow down, with this week announcement of Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, that "right now at NASA, there is more underway than in I don't know how many years past."

Rocket Lab, a New Zealand-based company, completed the It's Business Time mission in November. It put up to seven payloads into orbit.

Together with the success of Rocket Lab, the company secured another $140 million in funding, getting the total money increased to $288 million.

Elon Musk, a billionaire entrepreneur, once announced plans for a new SpaceX passenger spaceship called Big Falcon Rocket (BFR). Since that announcement, the name of the passenger spaceship has been changed from BFR to Starship.

Up to now, SpaceX has obtained 16 successful landings in a single row.
