ISRO pushes PSLV C40 to Jan 2018

Bengaluru, Nov 28 (UNI) Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is

pushing its next PSLV Launch to first week of January 2018 from the

scheduled second half of this year.

Talking to newsmen here, ISRO Chairman A S Kiran Kumar said that

the launch, carrying 30 satellites, including the lead spacecraft,

Cartosat will take place either during the last week of December or

early January.

ISRO suffered a setback in its workhorse launcher PSLV when the

previous launch PSLV C39 mission was unsuccessful on August 31 due

to failure of the opening up of the heat shield. The launcher was

carrying IRNSS 1H payload that had been built in collaboration with

private sector.

Dr Kiran Kumar indicated that ISRO would push far atleast one

launch a month during 2018.

Referring to Chandrayan-2 Mission, he said that the work on

realising the satellite was in full swing. The launch is likely to

take place by the middle of next year. ISRO would also use PSLV to

launch a private lunar mission being carried out by Team Indus. The

date of the launch is yet to be decided for this private launch,

Dr Kiran kumar indicated.
