Three Algerian satellites successfully launched from India
 
THX @gvaisakh:hatoff:
 

 

Three Algerian satellites (Alsat-1B, Alsat-2B and Alsat-1N) have successfully been launched Monday morning by Indian launcher PSLV C35 from Sriharikota site (Satich Dahwan Space Center), the Algerian Space Agency announced (ASAL).
 
Satich Dahwan Space Center's lancher PSLV C-35 put into orbite 8 satellites including three Algerian ones, ASAL said in a communiqué.
 
Alsat-1B is the second Algerian medium-resolution earth observation satellite launched by Algeria after Alsat-1.
 
Alsat-1B is part of the DMC" (Disaster Monitoring Constellation) international constellation endowed with an excellent shooting frequency. It contributes to the management of disasters under the International Chart "Space and Major Disasters."
 
For its part, Alsat-1N is a miniaturized satellite with scientific mission and technology demonstration developed in the framework of the implementation of the cooperation agreement with the United Kingdom Space A (UKSA) by a team of Algerian-British researchers.

India is now becoming more active in commercial launches and with successful PSLV multi stage launches we are expecting more nations to seek the services. India is the cheap service providing nation in this field for the satellite business.

Two weeks ago, Galileo satellite navigation system launched the first rocket that carried 4 navigation satellites at once into the space...

 

 

These boosters use "only" 5 tons of fuel every second.

what a discovery !!

NASA announces

Astronomers have discovered not one, not two, but seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a star called TRAPPIST-1.

What’s more, three of them are in the habitable zone— the happy place where liquid water can exist on the surface of rocky planets, as it’s not too hot or cold. (Although liquid water could potentially exist on any of the seven, NASA said, it likes the odds on those three best.) The space agency calls the discovery of the fascinating solar system record-breaking.
