India's Astrosat - India's own space observatory ..

PSLV C30, all set ..
India's own Space Observatory- Astrosat, is being launched on 28 September 2015 at 10 AM through ISRO's PSLV C30 mission from Srikarikotta, Dr Satish Dhawan Range.

After US, Russia and Japan, India will be the fourth in the world to have such a space observatory. Europe and China will take many years to try this novel act, as they are still kids in space research.

Astrosat will help India study deep space in visible, X-ray and UV spectrum. Astrosat will help study distant stars, white dwarfs, pulsars, black holes and the like ..This space observatory will be a great boost to sustain India's efforts to understand deep space and its immense possibilities ..

Besides Astrosat, ISRO's PSLV C30 also carries one satellite each from Indonesia, Canada and four from United States.

It is the first time and a great occasion for India that US with confidence in Indian capabilities, is seeing four US nano satellites being carried on PSLV C30 for the first time ..
