ISRO to launch two more satellites by December - Sathish - 09-07-2010

CHENNAI: The Indian Space Research Organization ( ISRO) has planned two more launches a PSLV and a GSLV mission in December.

Talking to reporters after delivering the valedictory address at Aarrush-2010', a techno-management Fest organised at SRM University, eminent scientist and Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre Director PS Veeraraghavan said both the launches would take place with a few weeks' gap.

The first would be PSLV-C16 mission which would place Resourcesat satellite and two other satellites -- a 90 kg satellite developed by Singapore University and a 90 kg Youthsat, developed by students of Russian and Indian universities -- in orbit.

This would be followed by a GSLV-F06 mission, using the Russian cryogenic stage, to place Indian Communication Satellite GSAT-5B in the GST orbit.
