Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday today has successfully placed advanced weather satellite SCATSAT-1 and and seven other satellites in the orbits. This is said to be ISRO’s longest ever launch mission, which spanned over two hours and 15 minutes. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C35) carrying the eight satellites took off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 9.12am. Around 17 minutes later, SCATSAT-1, the main payload of PSLV in its 37th flight, was placed in the polar sun synchronous orbit at an altitude of about 730km. SCATSAT-1, which will provide weather forecast including cyclone detection and tracking, will succeed the now defunct Oceansat-2 satellite launched in 2009.
