Recently in the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota a satellite, Kalamsat, named after former president and premier scientist Abdul Kalam was launched.

The Organization’s 46th flight of the polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C44) delivered the space Microsat-R, an imaging satellite and a student made communication satellite Kalamsat into space. The PSLV-C44 is a four stage launch vehicle with alternating solid and liquid stages and is the first mission of the PSLV-DL.

Earlier in a statement by ISRO chairman K. Sivan, it was announced that India’s second lunar mission, Chandrayaan-2 can be expected to launch sometime between March 25 to the end of April, after a delay where the launch was initially scheduled in late 2018.
