ISRO opens a big door of opportunity in space tech for students

Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C15) of ISRO has successfully placed 5 satellites. The advanced CARTOSAT - 2B is the major payload accompanied by four auxiliary satellites.

The interesting part of this launch is, particularly for Indian engineering academics is one of the satellite called STUDSAT, a pico-satellite weighing less than 1 kg, is made by students from a consortium of seven engineering colleges in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Few days back ISRO had launched RH200 rocket carrying payload developed by students from Vellore Institute of Technology University (VITU).

This is clearly a big opportunity for space technology addicts, so they can now get involved in space technology while studying in the college itself without working in ISRO.
