The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) started the new year with the successful launch of the XPoSAT (X-Ray Polarimeter Satellite). This is the first mission of this kind launched by ISRO from the Sriharikota launching pad in Andhra Pradesh.
The PSLV-C58 rocket was on its 60th mission and it carried the primary payload of XPoSAT, and deployed the satellite into the planned 650km orbit. ISRO later shared a video showing a glimpse of the satellite being inserted into its orbit.
With the launch of this mission ISRO became the only second country after the US which launched a mission to find the nature and characteristics of the celestial bodies. It will get the information from the direction of the vibration of the incoming waves.
