EOS-3 satellite launch: ISRO’s mission suffered a last-minute blow, cryogenic engine spoiled the game

Must read

The mission could not be successful due to a technical fault in the cryogenic engine. ISRO Chairman K Sivan said that ISRO’s GSLV-F10/EOS-03 mission could not be completed completely due to technical difficulties observed in the cryogenic stage of the launch.

Just before Independence Day on 15 August, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has created another history. ISRO successfully launched the EOS-03 satellite into space today.

It is said that the sharpest eyes


This satellite was meant to monitor the earth and that is why it is also being called India’s fastest eyes. ISRO had launched Earth observation satellite EOS-03 via GSLV-F10 at 5:43 am on Thursday from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. However, even after the launch was successful, it later failed.

The countdown started on Wednesday


The mission could not be successful due to a technical fault in the cryogenic engine. ISRO Chairman K Sivan said that ISRO’s GSLV-F10/EOS-03 mission could not be completed completely due to technical difficulties observed in the cryogenic stage of the launch.

India was going to benefit greatly from its successful launch. The 26-hour countdown for the launch of the earth observation satellite EOS-03 aboard the GSLV-F10 rocket began in Sriharikota on Wednesday.

This was the second launch of ISRO


ISRO has confirmed that GSLV Mk. The launch failed due to a defect observed in the cryogenic stage. The report said that this is the first failure in an Indian space launch since 2017. Prior to this, 14 consecutive missions of ISRO have been successful. This was ISRO’s second launch in 2021 after the launch of Brazil’s geo-observation satellite Amazonia-1 and 18 other small satellites in February.

These were the characteristics

EOS-03 is a highly advanced satellite, which was to be placed in Earth orbit with the help of the GSLV F10 vehicle. If this test is successful, then India’s strength will increase further and it will be easier to understand meteorological activities.

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.
