ISRO Charman Name: ISRO Dr. K. Sivan Confirms and Announce to Launch GSAT-30 Communication Satellite Launch On January 17
India is going to launch a GSAT-30 communication satellite in the first month of 2020. the satellite is scheduled to launch on January 17, 2020. the launch venue will be in Kourou space center in French Guiana on board an Ariane-5 rocket of the European space agency. This news was confirmed by the ISRO chief K.Sivan on Wednesday. This will be the first satellite launch of India in 2020.
The Indian space research organization ( ISRO) chairman stated in Bangalore that the launch of GSAT-30 communication satellite will be their first satellite launch in the new year 2020, to expand the ability to serve communication links to state-run and private service providers.
On February 6, 2019, the Paris based Arianespace launched the space agency’s GSAT-31, along with 1-2k bus structure to serve communication services for 15 years from geostationary orbit in Ku-band.
Sivan quoted that they are planning to complete 25 launches in this year, in which the Aditya-L1 satellite is also included. The Aditya -the L1 satellite will be inserted inside a halo orbit near the Lagrangian point which is approximately about 1.5 million km from the earth.
The Aditya is designed to study the outer layer of the sun, the solar corona, that extends up to thousands of km above the disc( photosphere or corona).
ISRO in a statement stated that it is a mystery that corona has a million degrees of temperature but the solar disc has only 6000K temperature, there is a huge difference in the temperature of both. It is a question that how corona reaches to such degrees of temperature.
Aditya is also designed to study the chromospheres (ultra-violent) and the particle flux releasing from the sun and approaching the L1 orbit.
At the halo around L1, the Magnetometer payload will calculate the variation in the magnetic field.
in this other, the other scheduled launches include SSLV( small satellite launch vehicle) that is designed to house smaller satellites having weight lesser than or equal to 500 kg in the lower orbit of the earth, GSLV with 4-metre give payload fairing, (heat shield), GSAT-20 Satellite, NavIC with indigenous atomic clocks, Xposat, and Indian data relay satellite system.
