This time Indian space agency failed

Post by Aupmanyav » Sun Apr 01, 2018 1:08 pm

"On Thursday night, a PSLV-C39 rocket of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) failed to launch the IRNSS-1H satellite due to a technical glitch with the “heat shield”. Despite the temptation to dismiss it as a minor blip, it’s clear that India is in no position to afford such mishaps. When the country is trying to garner a better share of the lucrative, worldwide satellite launch market and when it is attempting to scale greater heights in space, failures like this can delay plans. ..

Thursday’s failure is only the first one involving a PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) in 24 years. The last fiasco happened in 1993, when the very first flight in this series, PSLV-D1, failed to put remote-sensing satellite IRS-1E into space. But after that, many versions of PSLV rockets have had 39 successful launches.

And it’s the first major failure that comes seven years after the destruction of GSLV Mk I-D4 and the tenth disaster that ISRO has encountered in the last 38 years."
