Indian Rocket to Carry Seven Satellites in February 25 Launch

Indian space agency officials are gearing up to make the rocket that would carry seven satellites launch-ready for February 25 with a full system check, an official said. The rocket will blast off from the Sriharikota rocket launch centre, around 80 km from here, carrying seven satellites. The Indo-French initiative satellite SARAL (Satellite for ARGOS and ALTIKA), will study the sea surface heights and the data generated will be shared by both the countries. The other six satellites that PSLV-C20 would sling into orbit are two Canadian satellite NEOSSat (Near Earth Object Space Surveillance Satellite), the world’s first space telescope designed by Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and Sapphire satellite built by MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA), BRITE and UniBRITE (both Austria), STRaND-1 (Britain) and AAUSAT (Denmark).
