ISRO’s feat in space! Launched its smallest rocket SSLVD2 with 550kg capacity! learn about


Science News Desk – ISRO has done feats in the field of space. The agency has successfully launched its smallest rocket SSLVD2. It was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. Its specialty is that it was successful in placing many satellites in the Earth’s orbit in a very short time. However, the first time it was attempted to send, it failed. Its first flight was tested in August 2022 which was unsuccessful. At that time it could not place the satellite in the correct orbit.

SLV is generally used for satellite launch. It is abbreviated as Satellite Launch Vehicle or SLV. But on Friday ISRO launched SSLVD2. This small satellite launch vehicle has been made. According to ANI report, ISRO has made it the smallest rocket. It was sent into space at 9:18 am from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

After a journey of 15 minutes, it released three satellites into Earth orbit which were EOS-07, Janus-1 and AzaadiSAT-2. Talking about these three satellites, ISRO has made EOS-07 itself and its weight is 156.3 kg. Janus-1 is made by an American company. This satellite weighs 10.2 kg. Azadisat-2 has been built by a Chennai-based startup with the help of scientists from SpaceKidz. The weight of this satellite is 8.7 kg.

According to the report, Vinod, director of launch missions at ISRO, said, “Congratulations to all the 3 satellite teams for building the rocket as well as launching them into the right orbit.” We have checked SSLVD1 and fixed the problems. This time we worked on it swiftly for the successful launch of the rocket.” The agency has developed SSLV with the objective of carrying payloads of up to 550 kg in low earth orbit.
