[Satellite TODAY 07-13-10] The India Space Research Organization (ISRO) has successfully launched its PSLV-C15 rocket carrying five satellites into orbit on July 12, the agency announced.
    The rocket took off from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, India. The PSLV C15 carried a remote sensing satellite, the Cartosat 2B and one pico-satellite called StudSat, made by engineering college students of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. The other satellites were Alsat from Algeria and two nano-satellites from Canada and Switzerland.
    This launch, which was postponed in March, is a much-needed boost to the agency, coming three months after its GSLV D3 rocket crashed into the Bay of Bengal when it experienced an engine failure in April.
