Covai Post Network

Thanjavur: At least 80 American satellites will be launched at one go through the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) into space before January 2017, S. Pandian, Deputy Director of Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, ISRO, said.

Pandian, who was in Thanjavur to participate in a private function, told media persons today that it would be yet another milestone in the history of aerospace. “We are working towards human space programme. We are trying to send man to the Moon in another four or five years. Man will be sent to moon soon after getting the clearance from the government,” he said.

Scientists, he said, were now working on Aditya Mission, which is meant for studying the solar activities. Aditya Mission will be launched in 2020, he added.
