According to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Indian rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will lift off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh with 20 satellites at 9.25 am that day.

While the rocket’s main cargo will be India’s 725.5 kg Cartosat-2 series satellite for earth observation, the other 19 satellites weighing around 560 kg are from Canada, Germany, Indonesia and the United States as well as one satellite each from Sathyabama University, Chennai, and the College of Engineering, Pune, said the indiatoday.in report.

According to Indiatoday.in, the Swayam satellite weighing 1kg from Pune will provide point-to-point messaging services to the HAM radio community. HAM Radio, or Amateur Radio, is a popular service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or mobile phones.

The 1.5 kg Sathyabamasat from Sathyabama University will collect data on greenhouse gases.
