Isro will launch 9 satellites on November 26 – When and where to watch


This will be the last launch mission of the year for the PSLV and the launcher’s 56th mission overall.

India’s space agency, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), will launch nine satellites aboard its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) on Saturday. The launch will take place at Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, off the coast of Andhra Pradesh. The launch is scheduled to take place at 11:46 a.m. on Saturday, November 26. This will be the last launch mission of the year for the PSLV and the 56th mission for the launch vehicle as a whole.


The PSLV will carry a total of nine satellites. These include EOS-06 (Oceansat-3) and eight nanosatellites. The eight nanosatellites include BhutanSat from Bhutan, “Anand” from Pixxel, two Thybolts satellites from Dhruva Space and four Astrocasts from Spaceflight USA. EOS-6 is a third-generation satellite in the Oceansat family of satellites designed to perform ocean observations. Pixxel’s “Anand” satellite, backed by Lightspeed and Blume Ventures, is the third hyperspectral microsatellite launched by the company. It will join ‘Shakuntala’, which was launched earlier this year, as part of a constellation of six satellites.
Those looking to watch the launch of the rocket and satellites live can head to the space agency’s official YouTube channel. ISRO will be live streaming the launch on the platform and will also post regular launch updates on its social media platforms.

The PSLV launch comes just a week after private entity Skyroot Aerospace made history by launching India’s first privately-built rocket into space from ISRO’s Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The launch took place on November 18, around 11:30 a.m. The launch was named Mission “Prarambh” and took place in the presence of Dr. Jitendra Singh, Minister of Science and Technology of the Union.
