ISRO launches communication satellite GSAT-29

PTI
ISRO’s heavy-lift rocket GSLV-Mark-Three has proven its reliability by successfully launching the communication satellite GSAT-29. 

It lifted off on Wednesday evening at 05.08 hours from the second launch pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. 

In a little over 16 minutes, it injected the country’s second high-throughput communication satellite GSAT-29 into the geostationary transfer orbit.

ISRO chairman Dr Sivan, in his congratulatory message to his fellow scientists, said, the GSLV Mark-Three has entered majestically into the list of operational launch vehicles today. 

He informed that the second mission to the moon Chandrayaan-II will be accomplished by January next and the manned mission to space, Gaganyaan by December 2021. 

The GSLV Mark Three injected the satellite in an orbit closer to the earth at 190 km and farthest at 35,975 km. Later, the satellite will be brought to the intended circular and geostationary orbit of 36000 km radius using remote manoeuvring by scientists.
