PSLV launches military, student satellites
Posted: Sun, Jan 27, 2019, 11:00 AM ET (1600 GMT)
An Indian rocket successfully launched a small military imaging satellite Thursday. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle lifted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at 1:07 pm EST (1807 GMT, 11:37 pm local time) and placed the Microsat-R satellite into a sun-synchronous orbit. The satellite is a small reconnaissance satellite for the Indian military, although the Indian space agency ISRO provided few details about it. A secondary payload, the student-built Kalamsat 1U cubesat, was also on the rocket and remained attached, as planned, to the rocket's upper stage.
