Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has been known to be one of the world’s most prominent space organizations. Adding many feathers to the cap, ISRO had not tasted any failures in the past 24 years. However, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) which has been launched yesterday failed completely.
The technical glitch in its heat shield has been identified as the reason for it. PSLV failed for the second time in the history and it last happened on September 20th 1993. After the incident, 39 different versions of PSLV have been successful and now after 24 years PSLV ended up as a failure.
ISRO announced that the heat shield present in PSLV-C39 could not open because of which the satellite did not release. The investigation will be conducted by a committee of experts soon after the real fact behind the failure will be revealed. Some of the scientists said that the technology used has been a concern. PSLV has been a huge success which took 104 Indian satellites into space this year.
