India’s PSLV-C49 took off from the space port here on Saturday with its state-of-the-art ground observation satellite EOS-01 and nine customer satellites. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C49 / EOS-01) exploded from the Sehri Dhawan Space Center at 3:03 pm at the end of the 26-hour countdown.
The lift was originally scheduled for 3:02 p.m., but was delayed by 10 minutes due to debris on the way, ISRO said. This is the first mission of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) this year.
ISRO has posted a live feed of the launch on Twitter. The space agency also tweeted that all nine satellite satellites had been successfully separated and put into planned orbit.
