New Delhi (Sputnik) Sep 26, 2016


It will be the longest ever PSLV flight which will last for more than 2 hours 15 minutes.

ISRO hopes to outperform other stakeholders in the lightweight satellite launcher category by exhibiting its capability to carry out multi-orbit missions.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will achieve another milestone next week when the PSLV-C35, in its thirty-seventh flight, will launch 8 payloads in two different orbits.

This will be ISRO's first multi-orbit mission. It will be the longest ever PSLV flight which will last for more than 2 hours 15 minutes. The launch will be carried out from the Satish Dhawan Space Center, Sriharikota on September26.

PSLV C 35 will put the 377 kg SCATSAT-1 satellite for ocean and weather related studies and seven co-passenger satellites into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO).

The co-passenger satellites are from Algeria, Canada and the USA apart from the two satellites from Indian universities.

"SCATSAT-1 will be placed into a 720 km polar sun synchronous orbit whereas; the two universities satellites and the five foreign satellites will be placed into a 670 km polar orbit.

This is the first PSLV mission in which it will be launching its payloads into two different orbits," reads a statement by ISRO. SCATSAT-1 would provide wind vector data products for weather forecasting, cyclone detection and tracking services to users.

The mission life of the satellite is 5 years. Source: Sputnik News

Entropy
Bethesda MD (SPX) Sep 22, 2016
"Entropy" is defined as a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system's thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work. Many use this term to describe the degree of disorder or randomness in a system. A third definition is a lack of order or predictability with gradual decline into disorder. The second law of thermodynamics tells us that entropy always increases ... read more
