SCATSAT launch by ISRO
ISRO recently launched PSLV’s longest flight SCATSAT-1 for ocean and weather studies. The 320-tonne rocket, carrying eight satellites, blasted off from the launch pad at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. This launch is said to be ISRO’s longest mission spread over two hours and fifteen minutes.

The rocket’s main cargo will be the 371 kg SCATSAT-1 for ocean and weather related studies. This will be placed into a 730-km polar sun synchronous orbit around 17 minutes into the flight. PSLV C-35 took off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre here, about 110 km from Chennai at 9.12 AM. SCATSAT-1, the primary satellite, is meant for weather forecasting, cyclone detection and tracking.
