Indian satellite launch failure

Post by brian livesey »

After a successful lift-off of an earth observation satellite from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in southern Indian, the upper rocket stage malfunctioned. The state-run space centre acknowledged it as a setback for the country’s space programme.
The powerful satellite was designed to monitor cyclones and thunderstorms, along with natural disasters. Of the launch itself the Indian Space Research Organisation said: “Cryogenic upper stage ignition did not happen due to technical anomaly.”

Although this is rather sad news.
But to put it to optimistic side, India had successful launches during 2017 - 2020.
This mission was of a significant importance, and delayed for more than a year.
Technical investigations and improvements, lessons learnt always put launches a step forward.
