The PSLV-C56 carrying Singapore’s DS-SAR satellite with 6 co-passenger satellites has been successfully launched by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Sunday.

At 6:31 am, the PSLV-C56 successfully launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, carrying the DS-SAR satellite and six other passengers.

According to ISRO, the rocket successfully separated from the satellites 23 minutes after lift-off. After traveling 535 km, the satellites were deployed into their designated orbits.

The DS-SAR satellite was created in collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Agency and ST Engineering of the Singaporean government. It is scheduled to be launched into a near-equatorial orbit (NEO) at a 5-degree inclination, with an altitude of 535 km.

According to ISRO, the DS-SAR satellite will be utilized to fulfill the satellite imagery needs of multiple governmental agencies in Singapore once it has been deployed and is functioning.

The DS-SAR satellite is equipped with a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload created by Israel Aerospace Industries. This feature enables the satellite to provide day and night coverage in any weather conditions. Additionally, it is capable of capturing images at a resolution of 1 meter.

PSLV-C56 carrying seven satellites, including the primary satellite DS-SAR and six co-passengers, has been successfully placed in the right orbit. This is a PSLV mission for New Space India Limited (NSIL) and I want to congratulate the customers sponsored by the Government of Singapore for having this mission onboard PSLV and their continued faith in our launch vehicle for deploying their spacecraft, ISRO Chairman S. Somnath said.

There were six additional satellites in orbit, including VELOX-AM, a microsatellite weighing 23 kg, that demonstrated technology. ARCADE, an experimental satellite that studied atmospheric coupling and dynamics. SCOOB-II, a nanosatellite with a 3U size and a technology demonstrator payload.

NuLIoN, an advanced 3U nanosatellite that enabled IoT connectivity in both urban and remote areas. Galassia-2, another 3U nanosatellite in low earth orbit. Lastly, there was ORB-12 STRIDER, a satellite developed through international collaboration.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday joined Congress leader Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra. This came days after the seat-sharing deal between SP and Congress was finalised for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who played the crucial role in finalising the seat-sharing deal between SP and Congress, was also present at the Yatra.

During the Yatra, the former Uttar Pradesh CM Yadav thanked the people of UP and said the biggest challenges, in the coming days, are to save the democracy and the Constitution to fulfil the dream of the BR Ambedkar, which has been ruined by the BJP-led central government. He gave a slogan, “BJP Haatao, Desh Bachao.”  

The Wayanad MP, while addressing the public, said that the poor in this country face injustice all the time. The reason for hatred is injustice, so we have added the word justice to our journey, he added.

It has been a year since Congress completed the Bharat Jodo Yatra, walking 4,000 km from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. During the yatra, a person told Rahul that he had been trying to open a “Mohabbat Ki Dukan” in “Nafrat Ka Bazaar.” Now, along with Yadav and Priyanka, we are trying to do it again, Rahul added.

Priyanka Gandhi also expressed her happiness over Yadav joining the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra today. Earlier, while addressing the public, Priyanka said that the BJP has been in power for 10 years and during this time, many big events such as the G20 Summit took place. Everyone said that the respect of the country is increasing due to such events, and Congress agreed to it, she added.

However, she questioned whether the respect of the country is not connected to the young, policemen, and students. She highlighted the lack of job opportunities for the youth, farmers still protesting on roads, and inflation being a burden for the people of the country.
