ISRO Fails to Put GISAT-1 in orbit, Mission will be reschedule
"Spoke to Isro chairman Dr. K Sivan and discussed in detail," Jitendra Singh minister Union minister of state (MoS) in charge of the department of space, tweeted. "The first two stages went off fine, only after that, there was a difficulty in the cryogenic upper stage ignition. The mission can be rescheduled some time again," he said.
After the launch, the cryogenic upper stage of Isro's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) failed to place the GISAT-1 Earth observation satellite (EOS) into its intended orbit due to a technical anomaly.
It was announced on Thursday that the Indian Space Research Organisation's (Isro) stalled satellite mission could be rescheduled "some time" in the future, according to Union Minister of State Jitendra Singh. Dr. K Sivan, Isro's chairman, was the subject of a lengthy conversation between the minister and Dr. Sivan.
Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) in Andhra Pradesh launched the GISAT-1 satellite as part of the GSLV-F10 EOS-03 mission. A 26-hour countdown ended with the 51.70-meter rocket blasting off from the spaceport's second launch pad at 5:43 am as scheduled. According to NASA, the first and second stages of the rocket performed as expected.
Isro's goal was to place the Earth observation satellite in a highly elliptical geocentric orbit known as the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO), which is almost always used as a stopover for satellites before they reach their final orbit. With the help of a propulsion system, the satellite was expected to reach its final geostationary orbit after that.
This will allow researchers back home to gain new insight on an array of issues, said Isro earlier this week. The GISAT-1 satellite will obtain spectral signatures for agriculture (including forestry), mineralogy (including cloud properties), snow and glaciers, and oceanography.
