Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has congratulated the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for the successful launch of PSLV-C54/EOS-06 mission from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on Saturday.

Taking to Twitter, CM Naveen wrote, “Congratulate @isro on the successful launch of PSLV-C54/EOS-06 mission from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in #Sriharikota. The mission will further help in ensuring the data continuity of Ocean colour and wind vector data to sustain the operational applications.”

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched successfully PSLV-C54 carrying Oceansat-3 also known as Earth Observation Satellite-6, and 8 nanosatellites at 11.56am from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh on Saturday, November 26 2022.

The eight nanosatellites include ISRO Nano Satellite-2 for Bhutan (INS-2B), Anand, Astrocast (four satellites), and two Thybolt satellites. Notably, EOS-6 is the Oceansat series’ third-generation satellite. This is the 56th flight of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and the 24th Flight of the PSLV-XL version with 6 PSOM-XLs.

ISRO’s ever reliable PSLV rocket once again proved its mettle  when the polar satellite launch vehicle placed an earth observation satellite and eight other co-passenger satellites in multiple orbits, in one of the longest missions.
