The highly reliable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle lifted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikotta at 9.29 am. This was the 40th flight of PSLV.Of the 30 nano-satellites, 29 are from 14 different countries including France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain and the United States. The other is a domestic payload of a private educational institution. Around 16 minutes after lift-off, the rocket placed its main payload -Cartosat-2 Series Satellite in orbit. Cartosat-2 series satellite provides spot-specific pictures in high resolution.The imagery of Cartosat-2 series satellite will be useful in cartographic applications and urban and rural applications. The data gathered by it will also be useful for utility management like road network monitoring, water distribution, Land Information System and Geographical Information System applications. ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar congratulated the scientists after the mission was declared a success. He said, it comes just 18 days after the fruitful maiden test flight of GSLV Mark-III. Our correspondent has more on this:

"Today’s success of the PSLV mission reinforces the trust of global space technology users on the highly versatile launch vehicle PSLV. The Cartosat-2 series satellite is set to be an agile ‘eye in the sky’ for India to devise development plans. Another highlight of today’s mission is the re-ignition of the rocket’s engine during its flight and meticulously reaching all the intended goals of the technology demonstration. This is the third time such a novel experiment has been put to use during ISRO space flights. The scientists of the space agency say, the novel technology has given the confidence to launch several satellites in different classes of orbits in a single shot. It testifies to the novelty that is in the air in ISRO’s ambience. Jayasingh, AIR News, Chennai."
