ISRO is developing Hyper Spectral Imaging Satellite.

Indian Space Research Organization is planning to launch another Earth Observation satellite call HySIS or Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite. ISRO has developed a critical chip called Optical Imaging Detection Array. It has been testing the chip. Once perfected it will launch the satellite. Launch date has not been finalised yet. Hyperspectral Imaging has been a trend for a while now and most of the space faring nations are working on it now. ISRO has developed the tech according to Indian requirements. And after the launch ISRO will be able to see 55 spectral or colour bands from 600 km above....

India joins elite cryogenic club

“Necessity is the mother of all inventions” This is indeed true in the case of Cryogenic rocket engines since they were invented when the world needed them the most. During the World War II the American, Soviet and German engineers independently found that their rocket engines require high mass flow rate for both the fuel and oxidizer used in the rocket engines to generate maximum thrust. Back then, the most common oxidizer and fuel combinations used were that of oxygen and hydrocarbons of low molecular weight respectively. Both these elements share the gaseous state of matter at the room...
