The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has ready to launch its PSLV-C43 HysIS (hyperspectral imaging satellite) mission from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on November 29, which will place our latest Earth mapping satellite and 30 other satellites in orbit above our earth.
The satellite will be attended by 29 other satellites developed by many nations with 23 from the US.
The PSLV rocket launcher has a length of 39.4m and consists of a 4 stage rocket that has alternating solid and liquid stages.
The joint weight of the satellites is 641.5kg and the 30 foreign satellites will be launched at a height of 504 km from the Earth’s surface, ISRO’s HysIS satellite will be launched at a height of 636 km.
The 45th flight mission of the polar satellite launch vehicle PSLV rocket, ISRO has launched its newest Earth observation satellite, HysIS, as part of the mission.
HysIS will make its mapping by studying the effects of the Earth’s surface under the visible. This will help it track various actions on Earth without trouble from electric discharges from the upper atmosphere.
