Bangalore: India’s space agency has put off the 9 May launch of its homegrown polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) after it found a drop in pressure in the second stage of the rocket.
“The new date for the launch of (the) PSLV-C15 mission will be decided after preliminary results of the analysis are obtained,” the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) said in a statement on Thursday.
The rocket will carry remote sensing satellites—India’s Cartosat-2B and Algeria’s ALSAT-2A—as well as small university satellites.
