Indian rocket successfully launched Brazilian satellite into orbit

NEW DELHI, (BM) – The PSLV-C51 launch vehicle on Sunday successfully launched the Brazilian optical observation satellite Amazonia-1 into orbit and 18 more spacecraft, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said.

India launched the rocket from the Satish Dhawan Space Center, located on the island of Sriharikota, off India’s southeastern coast.

“Mission accomplished,” the organization said.

The Amazonia-1 satellite weighing about 640 kg is the first spacecraft created by the Brazilian National Space Institute. It will transmit data on the country’s agriculture and the state of forests in the Amazon region.

Among the 18 mini-satellites that then separated from the rocket in orbit are commercial and research vehicles from India and the United States.
