Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is going to create a new record tomorrow i.e. on Thursday. India is going to take a big leap in space three days before the 75th Independence Day. Under this, the country can now be monitored from space as well.
Actually, ISRO is about to launch its country’s first satellite EOS-03 to monitor the Earth. The countdown for this has started. After its success, India’s strength will increase. This satellite will be able to monitor disasters like floods and cyclones in India.
ISRO has informed us about the start of the countdown by tweeting. It read, “The countdown for the launch of Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-F10 EOS-03 has begun today at Satish Dhawan Space Center (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota.” ISRO said that the launch will be done on August 12 at 5:43 am. However, it will depend on the meteorological condition.
EOS-03 is a highly advanced satellite, which will be placed in Earth orbit with the help of a GSLV F10 vehicle. If this test is successful, then India’s strength will increase further and it will be easier to understand meteorological activities.

Know everything about the satellite and its features
- The GSLV flight is reported to carry the satellite in a 4-meter diameter-Ogive sized payload fairing, being flown for the first time on a rocket that has so far operated 13 other flights deploying the satellite and partner missions in space.
- It is being said that the EOS-03 satellite will take pictures of the entire country four-five times a day, which will send key data related to weather and environmental change.
- The EOS-03 satellite will enable near real-time monitoring of natural disasters like floods and cyclones in the Indian subcontinent as it undergoes major environmental and weather changes.
The first mission of the year took place in February
- Earlier on February 28, ISRO successfully carried out the first mission of the year.
- India’s rocket took off from the Sriharikota space center on 28 February carrying a Brazilian satellite for the first time.
- India’s PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) C-51 carrying Brazil’s Amazonia-1 and 18 other satellites took off from the Sriharikota Space Center. The picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was engraved on the top panel of this spacecraft.
