Oceansat to launch soon

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman G Madhavan Nair today said ISRO was planning to launch the indigenously built satellite 'Ocean Sat' on Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from Sriharikota in July or early August.

Talking to reporters after inaugurating a seminar on ''Aerospace Expanding Frontiers-Technologies and Challenges'' here, he said the launch would be another unique mission of ISRO. The satellite would enable the country to study the sea surface and wind, besides tracking down the fishing zones, he said.

Claiming that ''Chadrayaan-1'' had completed its mission and was a cent per cent success, the ISRO chief said ''we have mapped the entire lunar surface and the data collected had been given to scientific community for analysis. It will be out soon.'' ''Though we had found traces of magnesium and calcium, no trace of water was found on the Moon's surface,'' he said.
