Isro’s PSLV-C29 launched

Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has added another country to its client list for commercial satellite launches after Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C29) put in orbit six Singapore satellites on Wednesday. A core-alone version of the PSLV (without solid strap-ons) took off from the first launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, 100 km north of Chennai, at 6 pm on Wednesday. A little more than 18 minutes later, the rocket ejected the 400 kg TeLEOS-1 into a 555 km circular orbit. The other five satellites (two micro satellites and one nano satellite) were put in orbit within another three minutes before the fourth stage of the rocket re-started to move away from the satellites before.
