ISRO is thinking of developing next-gen astronomy satellite to follow up on its AstroSat mission
According to ISRO officials, data from AstroSat is widely utilised for the study of various fields of astronomy, from galactic to extra-galactic and from users from all over the world.

Astrosat has documented stars, star clusters, mapping of large and small satellite galaxies of the Milky Way.
ISRO's AstroSat detects galaxy that is one of the earliest sources of UV-light in space
After making this observation, the team analysed the data for two years to ensure they had made no mistakes since the Hubble telescope had not been able to detect it.
Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope on the AstroSat looks at the heart of Jellyfish galaxy
There is a cavity at the centre of this galaxy as there has been no formation of new stars in the past 100 billion years.
AstroSat space observatory discovers new group of stars in globular cluster
Globular clusters are collections of thousands to millions of stars, moving as one unit.
AstroSat reveals how hot stars residing in Milky Way's galaxy clusters evolve
Astrosat's UV capabilities allow hot stars to be seen individually, better estimate mass & temperature.
AstroSat data from 'Butterfly Nebulae' enables new discoveries about dying stars
The find could help solve an elusive astrophysics problem for the 'missing mass in planetary nebulae'.
AstroSat's first images capture a supernova that's over 10,000 light-years away
Tycho supernova, the remnant of which Astrosat captured, holds a special place in our history.
ISRO's space telescope AstroSat measures X-ray polarisation of the Crab pulsar in the Taurus constellation
The landmark measurement by the satellite's CZT (Cadmium-Zinc-Telluride) imaging instrument challenges theories of high energy X-ray emission from pulsars.
Indian astronomers obtain the ‘most precise hard X-ray polarization measurements of the Crab pulsar so far’
Crab pulsar contains 1.4 solar masses and rotates thirty times every second emitting a pulse of radiation in almost all wavelengths every 33 milliseconds.
