Sathyabhamasat propels ahead

The 1.6 kg Sathyabhamasat designed by the Sathyabhama University got a free ride in the PSLV C34 mission that was recently launched. The satellite was built by the University as part of a MoU that was signed with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), six years ago.

    The purpose of this satellite is to measure greenhouse gases from about 500 km above the ground. A team of students and faculty members from different disciplines have worked under the guidance of ISRO scientists to develop this. The life span of this satellite is expected to be around six months and after this period, it can be used for amateur radio communication. The university has set up facilities, including ground station, in its campus to monitor all parameters of the satellite and to acquire data from the satellite.

     A remarkable achievement indeed.

However, just a couple of days before the launch of this dream project, the founder of the University, Chancellor Dr.Jeppiaar, passed away. RIP.
