In pics: How ISRO prepares for PSLV-C38 launch
On June 23, ISRO’s workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C38 lifted off from the First Launch Pad in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The rocket will inject India’s sixth ‘eye in the sky’ Cartosat-2 series along with 30 nano satellites into Sun Synchronous Orbit. Peek into how ISRO prepared for the launch.
