Earth observation satellite Evos-07 weighing 156.3 kg, Azadisat-02 weighing 8.7 kg created by SpaceKids India with the help of children, and Janus-01 weighing 11.5 kg from Antares in America were sent into orbit. On the eve of the rocket launch, ISRO Chairman S. Somnath visited Chengalamma in Sullurpet to wish the success of the rocket and performed special puja. ISRO officials conducted a special pooja for the SSLV-D2 prototype at the Tirumala Srivari Temple on Thursday morning.
After the August 7 launch failed, scientists developed another smaller rocket and conducted several key tests to prepare the SSLV-D2 rocket. With the success of this launch, ISRO has set a new record as a country to send satellites into space at the lowest cost. This development will attract the global space trade sector.
The Earth observation satellite EOS-02 launched into Ningi weighs 140 kg. It is designed to help provide internet connectivity in remote areas. Also, Azadisat weighing 8 kg was created by 750 students from 75 government schools. It was designed to mark the 75th anniversary of independence, Azadika Amrit Mahotsavam. The lifetime of this satellite is six months. It includes a recorded version of the national anthem sung by Rabindranath Tagore.
