In a good news from space for India as a whole, 104 satellites that were launched on February 15 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), which was a record in itself – the US start-up Planet Labs, that owned 88 of the satellites, tweeted: “Happy to report that all of the 88 Doves are happy, healthy, and rotating in real-time!’’ According to Indian Express, while the 101 foreign satellites that flew on the PSLV C37 on February 15 and ISRO’s own 714 kg Cartosat-2 mapping satellite have stabilised and reported back to Earth stations with the first bits of data, two experimental Indian nano satellites – INS-1A and INS-1B weighing 8.4 kg and 9.7 kg – are yet to achieve stability to begin operations.

While ISRO is trying put out the first set of images taken by the Cartosat 2 series satellite, there has been no information about INS-1 A and INS 1-B since their launch. Even according to the data from some sites monitoring the satellites have indicated that despite over 10 days in space, the two have not stabilised.

D P Karnik, ISRO director for publicity said that the organisation is attempting to stabilise the experimental nano satellites that were launched. The two nano satellites are being monitored by the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru. The experimental nano satellites are carrying instruments from ISRO’s Space Application Centre and the Laboratory for Electro Optic Systems. The data gathered will be used for internal purposes. Meanwhile, ISTRAC is still in touch with the two small satellites launched 10 days ago, an ISRO official said.
