PSLV launch: Congratulate our scientists!

January 10, 2007

India on Wednesday added yet another feather to its cap in space technology when its 10th Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle put four satellites into orbit. The PSLV-C7 blasted off into space at 9.24 am from the spaceport at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, 160 km from Chennai.

India will join an elite group of nations with the launch of a new mission to test re-entry technology, which would be a forerunner to developing reusable vehicles like space shuttles.

With this achievement, Indian Space and Research Organisation scientists have proved that they are second to none when it comes to space technology. We invite you to congratulate our scientists on the successful launch.

Congratulate our scientists!
