 on Friday, January 12, successfully launched weather observation 
satellite Cartosat 2 Series and 29 other spacecraft onboard its 
dependable Polar rocket from here.

The successful orbiting of the satellites by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C-40 comes four months after the Indian space Research Organisation’s mission to launch backup navigation spacecraft IRNSS-1H onboard PSLV-39 ended in a rare failure.

My heartiest congratulations to @isro
 and its scientists on the successful launch of PSLV today. This success
 in the New Year will bring benefits of the country’s rapid strides in 
space technology to our citizens, farmers, fishermen etc. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 12, 2018

A jubilant ISRO Chairman A S Kiran Kumar
 announced that the Cartosat 2 Series satellite, the seventh in the 
series, a nano satellite and 28 commercial payloads were successfully 
injected into the orbit one by one by the PSLV C-40, in the space of 
about 17.33 minutes since lift-off.

A micro satellite of India would be orbited after about 90 minutes following the re-ignition of the fourth stage, Kumar said.

International customer satellites are three micro and 25 nano-satellites from six countries — Canada, Finland, France, Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Earlier, at the end of the 28-hours 
countdown, the 44.4-meter-tall PSLV-C40 in its 42nd flight, lifted off 
at 9.29 am and soared into a cloudy sky from the first launch pad.

The opening mission of 2018 was 
considered crucial for ISRO as the previous PSLV launch came as a 
setback to scientists as the backup navigation satellite IRNSS-1H could 
not be placed in orbit following a snag in the final leg of the PSLV-C39
 mission in August last year.

The heat shield of the rocket did not 
separate in the final leg of the launch sequence, trapping the satellite
 in the fourth stage of the rocket.

A visibly relieved Kiran Kumar, on his 
final mission as the chief of the space agency, said he was happy to 
provide Cartosat 2 Series as a New Year gift for the country.

“ISRO is starting 2018 with the 
successful launch… all customer satellites (besides Cartosat and 
nanosat) released and the microast after one hour. So far Cartosat 
performance is satisfactory,” he said at the mission control room.


Referring to the previous launch, he 
said it had heat shield problem and an ISRO committee had addressed it 
and taken steps to ensure the vehicle was ‘robust’.
