The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will launch its first satellite of the year at 5.59 a.m. on February 14th, Valentine's Day. The PSLV-C52 rocket will be used to launch this satellite. The PSLV-C52 rocket is being prepped for launch on the Satish Dhawan Space Center's launchpad in Sriharikota. Almost all of the launch preparations have been finished.
The countdown for the satellite's launch will begin 25 hours and 30 minutes before launch, with the launch process beginning at 4.29 a.m. ISRO had stated that it expects to launch the EOS-4 / RISAT-1A satellite in July 2022 using a PSLV-C52 rocket.
The launch of the satellite was repeatedly postponed owing to the Coronavirus in the country, but ISRO has now set a date for its launch. The EOS-4/RISAT-1A is actually a microwave remote sensing satellite. Although, along with the satellite, two more satellites are being launched into space: INSPIREsat-1, developed by students at the Indian Institute of Science and Technology, and INS-2B, an Indo-Bhutan joint satellite.
The launch of the satellite was confirmed by ISRO on Twitter.
