GSAT-29 satellite

India’s heaviest and most powerful rocket GSLV Mk-III on Wednesday successfully launched ISRO’s latest communication satellite GSAT-29. Expected to function for 10 years, the 3,423-kg satellite was placed into a geostationary orbit at 35,786 km from the Earth. The rocket is expected to carry Indian astronauts for the 2022 mission and also India’s second Moon mission Chandrayaan-2 in January 2019.

It will now be part of ISRO’s fleet of operational vehicles, which includes the highly successful PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle). The organisation took to Twitter to confirm the successful launch of the communication satellite.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated ISRO on the launch saying that the double success sets a new record of putting the heaviest satellite in orbit by an Indian launch vehicle.
