6 Satellites including 4 for the U.S., Indonesia and Canada. After few days it celebrated the successful completion of a year around the red planet by its first inter-planetary mission; The Mars Orbiter, the Indian Space Research Organisation on Monday launched its First dedicated multi-wavelength space observatory Astrosat into space, besides 6 satellites for Canada, Indonesia and the United Sates. The Astrosat may be similar to the NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the former is 10 times smaller and cannot be compared to the Hubble, which is versatile. The ISRO’s PSLV C-30 rocket successfully placed the orbit ASTOSAT. Later, lifted off Canada’s NLS-14 Nano satellite, Indonesia’s LA-PAN-A2 microsatellite and 4 identical LEMUR Nano satellites for the U.S. were also put in the orbit.
Astrosat aims at understanding the high energy processes in binary star systems containing neutron stars and black holes, to estimate magnetic fields of neutron stars, to study star birth regions and high energy processes in star systems lying beyond the Milky way Galaxy.
The mission also intends to detect new briefly bright X-ray sources in the sky, to perform a limited deep filed survey of the universe in the UV region.
