ISRO EOS-03 launch: ISRO missed making history, mission happened after reaching the third stage. EOS-03 launch: ISRO’s GSLV-F10 lifts off successfully from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota
ISRO missed making history, cryogenic engine spoiled the game
- ISRO missed making history by launching EOS-03, mission failed
- The control center had stopped receiving data from the cryogenic engine in the third stage of the rocket.
Sriharikota (Andhra Pradesh): GSLV-F missed out on creating history by launching Earth-observing satellite EOS-03 aboard a 10 rocket. Shortly after launch, the data from the cryogenic engine stopped receiving. The GSLV-F10 rocket took off but the mission failed a few seconds ahead of time and data stopped being received. After this, the tension was clearly visible on the faces of the scientists sitting in the control room of ISRO. Giving information on the failure of the mission, ISRO Chairman K Sivan said, ‘The mission could not be completed. The main reason for this was the technical fault in the cryogenic stage.
While issuing a statement in this regard, ISRO said, ‘The launch of GSLV-F10 took place at 0543 Indian times as per the schedule today. The performance of Phase I and II was normal. However, the cryogenic upper stage ignition did not occur due to a technical fault. The mission could not be completed as per the objective. This was ISRO’s second launch in 2021 after the launch of Brazil’s geo-observation satellite Amazonia-1 and 18 other small satellites in February.
what were the features
- The state-of-the-art earth observation satellite EOS-03 was to be placed in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) by GSLV-F10. Thereafter, the satellite was to reach the final geostationary orbit using its propellant system.
- It will be placed in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit by GSLV-F10. Thereafter, the satellite was to reach geostationary orbit using its on-board propulsion system.
- The main feature of the Earth Observation Satellite (EOS) is that it will send real-time images of a identified large area area at frequent intervals. It works to help in quick monitoring of natural calamities, episodic events as well as any short term events.
- Through this, along with quick monitoring of natural calamities, information about agriculture, afforestation, water resources and providing disaster warning, monitoring of cyclone, cloudburst etc. was to be received.
Ahead of the launch, the Union Minister of State for Science and Technology, Dr. Jitendra Singh said, “As far as space technology is concerned, the diverse applications of space technology in every sphere of life are being accepted all over the world today. Our findings and experiences in space technology are being shared by some of the world’s leading space technology institutes. He said that ever since Shri Narendra Modi took over as the Prime Minister, there has been a constant effort to implement indigenous technologies of India in every Ministry and in every infrastructural development process.
