Lift off September 2, 2007

Posted by PagMax in India, ISRO, space.

 More than a year after I mourned for ISRO’s splash down, today we finally have a lift-off  of the same launch vehicle carrying identical satellite!

GSLV-F04 successfully placed INSAT-4CR in Orbit. In my opinion, It is a defining moment for Indian space program, firstly because it is first of INSAT series to be launched from Indian Soil (Earlier INSAT vehicles were piggybacked to Arena rocket launched from Kourou, French Guiana), and secondly it puts in confidence in our mission to moon and manned space flight. And of course, dozen of high-power Ku-band transponders onboard will make your network television look even better..!!

Go ISRO!

Okay, can this satellite be used for spying purposes? There’s a girl who’s actions I need to monitor.

And anything that can make my T.V. clearer deserves applause because the cable operator tries his level best to make it unclear. Go ISRO!

And after you guys go to jail, do I have the permission to make a post saying “Sparks Team Blog members arrested for leaking India’s research secrets on their blog in the form of a picture!” ? 😛

That’s “member and not “members”, no? 🙂

Spying sounds very Googely. Don’t know why, but it does.
