ISRO launches 36 satellites onboard its heaviest rocket; all you need to know

Published Date:

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched 36 satellites on board its heaviest rocket called the LVM3-M2/OneWeb India-1 from the spaceport in Sriharikota on Sunday. All the satellites will be placed into the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) for a customer based in UK.

A central public sector enterprise under the Department of Space, NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), has previously signed  two launch service contracts with London-based Network Access Associated Limited (OneWeb) for the launch of OneWeb LEO satellites onboard ISRO’s LVM3.

India’s Bharti Enterprises is a major investor and shareholder in OneWeb, a private satellite communications company.

ISRO’s heaviest rocket

ISRO’s 43.5 metre tall rocket is capable of carrying up to 8,000 kg. It soared at 12.07 am from the second launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at the end of the 24-hour countdown. According to ISRO, it has become the first Indian rocket with a payload of 5,796 kg.

Why is this mission significant?

The mission is significant because this was LVM3’s maiden commercial mission and also NSIL’s first with the said launch vehicle.

What ISRO said?

ISRO announced on social media that the mission was successful: “LVM3 M2/OneWeb India-1 mission is completed successfully. All the 36 satellites have been placed into intended orbits.”
