It is a very proud day for every Indian as today ISRO has successfully launched its Small Satellite Launch Vehicle dubbed the SSLV D2 from India’s Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. It has carried three satellites and that includes an Earth Observation satellite (EOS-07) and two other co-satellites called Janus1 and AzadiSat2 which were placed in a 450km circular orbit around our planet.
EOS-07 is a 156.3 kg satellite designed and developed by ISRO and Janus-1 is a 10.2 kg satellite made by the US company Antaris while the AzaadiSAT-2 is an 8.7kg satellite made by 750 girl students under the guidance of Space Kidz India.
It is worth mentioning that the mission was successfully completed in just 15 minutes of the flight and the ISRO has touched the success after the failure in August 2022.
During the August flight, SSLV had issues during the second stage of separation and the rocket started vibrating intensely which then saturated all six accelerometers in the SSLV’s navigation system. It resulted in the automatic pushing of the rocket into salvage mode wherein it deployed the two payloads in the wrong orbit.
