Congrats, India! Launch of PSLV-C33/IRNSS-1G
It's not getting a lot of press here in the US, but India has a pretty awesome space program. They just finished orbiting their 7th navigation satellite. This gives them a completely home-grown alternative to GPS.
Here's the launch of PSLV-C33/IRNSS-1G.
I'm curious about these sheets that appear to fly off just after liftoff.
My country learned a very painful lesson about the cost of falling ice and foam during launch.
