After the Mars orbiter spacecraft’s a success come upon with comet Siding Spring remaining week, a huge hurdle was over and the satellite is now in a normal segment of the mission to proceed with other experiments, Isro mentioned on Wednesday.
“One factor that was somewhat pleasant was the satellite tv for pc survived this comet, there was once completely no problem…; it took place between October 19 and twentieth, it has been about ten days since then, issues are happening very correctly as deliberate,” Isro satellite tv for pc Centre (ISAC) Director S k Shivakumar informed reporters in Bangalore.
Conversing at the pre-adventure press meet of Engineers’ Conclave, he stated, “we are very happy with the way in which through which we’ve got manoeuvred the satellite and the way it behaved pre and publish man oeuvre, and the way it survived from the comet. With that, one main hurdle is in reality completed now we are extra focusing on the experiments we are trying to do.”
“Things are going as per schedule, things are very clear for us and we’re conducting the experiments as deliberate. With that we feel it’s at standard face of the mission, and we will no doubt give up the satellite tv for pc to our ISTRAC chums for subsequent 6 months minimum, past that it will be truly bonus to each person,” he stated.
Isro Says Mangalyaan Mars Orbiter Passes Major Comet Hurdle
The comet, known as Siding Spring (C/2013 A1), made its closest encounter with Mars on October 19th middle of the night for which Isro had repositioned its Mars Orbiter satellite to steer clear of collision.
Isro together with Indian nationwide Academy of Engineering is organizing “Engineers ‘Conclave- 2014” (EC-2014) from October 30 to November 1 in Bangalore. The aim of the adventure is to provide a platform to all professional engineers/scientists of the united states of America to deal with one of the vital main engineering challenges related to society and to suggest appropriate engineering solutions. Ok Radhakrishnan, Chairman, Isro/Secretary, division of house is the Chair and Dr Baldev Raj, President, INAE/Director, nationwide Institute of advanced studies, is the co-chair of Engineers’ Conclave-2014.
Outlining the GSAT launches, Shivakumar mentioned, “mainly GSAT-16 will go on December 4 Kourou in French Guiana and then next will likely be GSAT-15, along with that we are making ready GSAT-18 and 17 in the identical order. We really feel that by using the top of next year we have now to ship 18 and early 2016 we’ve got to send 17.”
