As per report ISRO’s rocket launch on January 24 was mainly to put into orbit a 740 kg satellite named Microsat-R that will be used to take high resolution photographs of the earth. Meanwhile this satellite will be used by the Indian Defense research team and the satellite was launched using the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and was successfully placed into orbit.



Furthermore this is the first such satellite that was designed and built in India. Reportedly onboard the PSLV was the world’s lightest satellite that was built by Indian students and this satellite weighs just 1.2Kgs and is named Kalamsat v2. The satellite cost the student team around Rs 12 Lakhs, but ISRO launched it into orbit for free. Accordingly Chairman Dr K Sivan said the PSLV-C44 mission was unique as it was for the first time ISRO used the last stage of the rocket as a platform to perform experiments in space.

We want students to bring their satellites to us and we will launch them. Young scientists will shape the future of India”.
