Sriharikota (AP) : In its second dedicated commercial
mission, India’s workhorse launch vehicle PSLV-C 53 on Thursday
successfully launched three satellites from Singapore from the
SHAR Range here.
After a smooth 25 hour countdown during which propellant filling
operations were taken up in the launch vehicle and after the
Automatic Launch Sequence (ALS) was initiated, the 44.4 m tall
four stage vehicle with a lift-off mass of 228.433 tonnes, took off
majestically from the Second Launch Pad at 1802 hrs.
