Indian Space Research Organization
launched its spy satellite today (April
20th, 2009). The satellite PSLV-C12
carried a 300-kg spy satellite, Radar
Imaging Satellite (RISAT-2) and the
40-kg Micro Satellite ANUSAT, successfully.
It took off from the ISRO’s
Satish Dhawan Space Centre at 06:45
am. The spy satellite will be very
useful to India because it will help
monitor the mountains and valleys
that connect India to Pakistan.
