  |   India News

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched the seventh and the last navigational satellite, IRNSS-1G📡 of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) from Sriharikota, on Thursday. Previously, the ISRO🚀 launched IRNSS-1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and 1F in July 2013, April 2014, October 2014, March 2015, January 2016 and March 2016, respectively. The IRNSS-1G was on board Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket — PSLV-C33, having a lift-off mass of 1425 kg and carrying 2⃣ types of payloads – navigation payload and ranging payload. IRNSS-1G will be launched into a sub Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. The satellite would make 🇮🇳's regional navigation system on par with the GPS of the U.S👏. India's system will provide accurate location and time to the Standard Positioning Service (SPS) users in India, using the SPS within the geographical boundary of India and a little beyond that. PM Narendra Modi congratulated the ISRO scientists👓 on their achievement and called it an example of Make in 🇮🇳. Click here to view Modi's message📹:
