Bangalore: India’s space agency will launch in May five satellites, including an 120-kg remote sensing satellite from Algeria on a single rocket, an official said on Wednesday.
The polar satellite launch vehicle or PSLV will carry a homegrown remote sensing satellite Cartosat-2B, which can snap images of less than a metre, three educational satellites—two from Canada and one built by engineering college students in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
“We are looking at a launch by May 10 or 15th,” said K. Radhakrishnan, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation or Isro.
