In another setback to India’s space agency on its launch mission, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Sunday said the satellite aboard its first small satellite launch vehicle after being placed in an elliptical orbit by SSLV-D1 is “now used”. not doable”. instead of a sphere.
A committee will analyze and make recommendations in today’s episode and with the implementation of those recommendations, the space agency informed on its official Twitter handle. It says that it will be back soon with SSLV-D2.
In its first SSLV mission, the launch vehicle carried the Earth observation satellite EOS-02 and co-passenger student satellite AzadiSat. SSLV had suffered ‘data loss’ in its terminal phase, after performing “as expected” in all phases. Earlier on Sunday morning, the spacecraft took off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.
However, this is not the first time that ISRO has faced setbacks on its launch mission. Let’s take a look at some of the failed missions of ISRO:
10 August 1979
The first major satellite failure for ISRO occurred on August 10, 1979, when the country’s first experimental flight of SLV-3 carrying Rohini technology payload could not place the satellite in its intended orbit. Hindustan Times Reported citing Medium.com.
24 March 1987
SROSS-1, a 150 kg satellite carrying scientific instruments, was launched on the first ASLV (Augmented Satellite Launch Vehicle) developmental flight on March 24, 1987. However, it failed to reach Earth orbit.
September 20, 1993
Dubbed as one of ISRO’s trusted workhorses, PSLV did not succeed in its maiden flight. However, after a successful launch the following year, it emerged as a reliable and versatile launch vehicle for the space agency.
10 July 2006
The launch vehicle GSLV-F02, the country’s first attempt at a heavy communication satellite, also failed.
August 31, 2017
PSLV-C39, which was supposed to launch IRNSS-1H, failed in its 41st flight. Despite normal lift-off, the satellites were separated within the heat shield, resulting in mission failure.
September 7, 2019
ISRO’s second mission for Chandrayaan-2 orbiter was launched in 2019. However, this mission still failed when the lander crashed on the lunar surface instead of landing slowly. Both the lander and the rover were destroyed.
12 August 2021
The launch of an Earth observation satellite on board the GSLV Mk 2 rocket GISAT-1 failed just 350 seconds after it was launched from India’s spaceport. ISRO’s preliminary analysis identified “a technical anomaly in the cryogenic stage” as a reason behind the failure.
