ISRO’s maiden SSLV lifts off from Sriharikota, data loss reported

The Indian Space of Research Organisation (ISRO) on Sunday launched its maiden Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) carrying earth observation and student satellites from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SHAR), Sriharikota. The countdown for the launch commenced at 2.26 am on Sunday and lifted off at 9.18 am. The Earth Observation Satellite ( EOS)-02 and AzaadiSAT will be placed in low earth orbit by this mission.

Soon after the launch, data was reported. The ISRO chief S Somnath said that they were analysing the data to conclude the final outcome of the mission with respect to achieving a stable orbit. The space agency would get back with more detail.

AzadiSAT is an 8 kg Cubesat. It has been designed by the girl students across the country to mark the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. The ISRO said that the AzaadiSAT carried 75 different payloads each weighing around 50 grams. Guidance was invited from the girl students of rural regions across the country to build these payloads which are integrated by the student team of Space Kidz India.

According to the ISRO website, the payloads include a UHF-VHF Transponder working in ham radio frequency to enable voice and data transmission for amateur radio operators, a solid state PIN diode-based Radiation counter to measure the ionising radiation in its orbit, a long-range transponder and a selfie camera. The ground system developed by ‘Space Kidz India’ will be utilised for receiving the data from this satellite.

The EOS-02 offers advanced optical remote sensing operating in infrared bands with high spatial resolution. It will provide input on thermal anomalies towards supporting applications in the domains of geo-environment studies, forestry, hydrology, agriculture, soil and coastal studies.

Unlike Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), the SSLV can carry payloads weighing up to 500 kg and deploy satellites into a 500 km low earth orbit. The ISRO wants to grab a bigger share in the demanding SSLV market.  

The space organisation said that the SSLV uses hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (a solid fuel) to fire the first three stages which takes the payloads to the desired altitude. The fourth stage comprises a liquid propulsion-based Velocity Trimming Module (VTM) to place the satellite into orbit.

The Juvenile Justice Board in Hyderabad on Friday ruled that four of the five accused minors in the Jubilee Hills gang-rape case of a teenage girl can be tried as adults. Whereas the fifth accused, the son of an AIMIM legislator, might be tried as a juvenile.

The principal magistrate, G Radhika, Juvenile Justice Board cited that she had gathered after talking to the 5 accused CCL, children in conflict with the law, that to her understanding, the accused have a mental and physical understanding of the consequences of the crime.

She further added that the CCLs were not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, which implies that the accused were not in control of their minds to determine right from wrong. Hence, with an understanding of the heaviness of the crime, Radhika believes that the 5 accused should be tried as adults for their crimes.

The Principal Magistrate, while hearing out the case, also disagreed with the aspect of the 5 accused being tempted to commit the crime by the welcoming of the victim or the aspect of the children not having legal education which resulted in them not realizing the consequences of the crime.

A teenage girl, who agreed to be dropped home by the accused after attending a party, was raped in the car by four people in Hyderad’s Jubilee Hill in June. After the incident, the father of the victim reported the case to the Hyderabad police on 2nd June. A case was registered against 5 CCLs (Children in conflict with the law) and one adult who is also the prime accused, under the charges of rape, whereas, the son of the MP was charged with molestation charges.

Subsequently after, the Hyderabad police arrested five minors and an 18-year-old, Saduddin Malik. The Hyderabad police, in order to get the suspects maximum punishment, appealed for the CCLs to be tried as adults. The Juvenile Justice Board and Psychologists have since then evaluated the situation and have ruled that 4 out of the 5 CCLs can be tried as adults.

The involvement of AIMIM’s legislator’s son has sensationalised the case as the opposition parties have been launching AIMIM party for giving tickets to such leaders.
