Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) satellite launch vehicle🚀, PSLV-C32, successfully put 🇮🇳's 6⃣th navigation satellite📡 into orbit on Thursday. The launch was carried out from the second launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 4.01pm🕐. It was delayed by 1 minute to avoid space debris😅. The IRNSS (Indian Regional navigation Satellite System) was launched into a sub-Geosynchronous and it will carry a navigation payload and a ranging payload👍. Navigation payload helps transmit navigation signals📶 to users while the other facilitates accurate determination of the range of the satellite. The IRNSS has come to be known as 🇮🇳's own GPS👏. It is the 6⃣th of 🇮🇳's own planned constellation of 7⃣ navigation satellites.
