The Brazilian Amazonia 1 satellite, which was successfully launched by the PSLV C51 rocket, was put into orbit.
Scientists in Brazil have developed a satellite called Amazonia 1 to monitor the extinction of the Amazon rainforest and analyze multiculturalism. The 637 kg satellite was launched by New Space India under the Indian Space Agency. The company plans to launch the first Brazilian commercial satellite, 5 Indian satellites and 13 American satellites.
Arrangements were made for this on the launch pad at the Satishdavan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The PSLV C51 rocket carrying 19 satellites took off at 10.24 am today exactly as planned.
17 minutes after the rocket launch, the Amazonia 1 satellite separated from it and entered orbit. During the next hour and a half, the other 18 satellites separated from the rocket and entered orbit. These include satellites manufactured by Space Kids India, Chennai, Tiruperumbudur Jappier Technology Center, and Sreesakthi College of Engineering, Coimbatore. ISRO scientists are pleased with the successful rocket satellite launch.
The Brazilian Minister of Science and Technology, Marcus Caesar Pontis, visited Sriharikota and inspected the satellite launch.
ISRO chief Shivan said India and ISRO were very proud to launch the Amazon-1 satellite launched in Brazil.
