PSLV-C17 GSAT-12

Yesterday, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) successfully launched its PSLV-C17 (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) from the Satish dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, carrying to space GSAT-12, a communication satellite. The rocket roared off the second launch pad from the spaceport here on the dot at 4.48 p.m. and effortlessly lobbed the 1,310-kg satellite in orbit after a 20-minute eventless flight. This is the 18th successful flight of the PSLV in a row.

PSLV-C17, which marked the 19th flight of the Isro’s workhorse, was similar to the one used for the Chandrayaan-1 mission on October 22, 2008, with six extended solid strap-on motors. The Indian National Satellite (Insat) system, established in 1983, is one of the largest domestic communication satellite systems in the Asia Pacific region.

There were thick clouds as the PSLV-C17 lifted off majestically and disappeared into the clouds after a few seconds. It was a flawless mission with the four stages of the PSLV-C17 igniting and separating on time and the fourth stage putting the satellite accurately in orbit.
