    India’s ‘eye in the sky’ satellite set for take-off

    Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) “eye in the sky” satellite is set for launch. ISRO said on Wednesday morning that countdown has already begun for the launch of “eye in the sky” – the GISAT-1 Earth observation satellite (EOS).

    The satellite is scheduled to be launched at 5:43 am on Thursday on a geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh as a part of the GSLV-F10 EOS-03 mission.

    India, and ISRO adds another milestone in its space science advancement as the nation steps into its 75 years of independence.

    Why ‘eye in the sky’ is a game-changer?

    Here are the reasons the GISAT-1 satellite launch is being touted as a game-changer in India’s space aspirations, owing to its functionality in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit, before moving on to the final geostationary orbit. Here’s a brief explainer on the scope of this satellite launch.

    1. Officially termed the Geo Imaging Satellite-1 (GISAT-1), the satellite launched by Isro will keep an eye out on “locations of interest” for India. Essentially, it will serve as India’s “eye in the sky”.
    2. While replying to a question in Parliament earlier this week, Union minister of state (MoS) in charge of the department of space, Jitendra Singh, said that the Earth observation satellite will send Isro 4-5 photographs from across the country daily.
