IRNSS 1C is successfully launched and released in desired orbit by ISRO from Sriharikotta at 01:32 hrs this morning 2 hrs back aboard PSLV C26 !!
A pat to Project Director P Kunhikrishnan (in photo) once again ..
ISRO workhorse PSLV demonstrates not only very high reliability in launches but also versatality and innovation in using the same launch vehicle technology for launches to low-earth orbits, geo-synchronous orbits and even planetary missions !!
Mastering real rocket science !!
The rest of the world may not be able to appreciate our innovation and technology of low-cost launches, but this is the deal clincher for all commercial launches by "Antriksh" - commercial arm of ISRO, for all other less developed (and so called advanced :) ) countries of the world !
Remembering the founding father of ISRO Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and all other scientists who have directed and played great roles in all ISRO missions . .
