While trying debris removal technologies, it is also imperative that authorities work out the best ways to regulate space activity.
It is being assembled in a NASA clean room, after which it will be sent to India to prep it for launch at UR Rao Space Centre.
But satellite monitoring is not enough on its own and cannot capture the detail you can get on the ground.
NSIL is in the process of identifying an Indian industry partner to undertake end-to-end production of the PSLV.
Rao was instrumental in the development of the ASLV, the PSLV, GSLV rocket and encouraged work to begin on cryogenic technology.
The mission is targeted to launch in early 2022 from ISRO's Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh.
GISAT-1 launch will be followed by the maiden flight of Small Satellite Launch Vehicle, ISRO’s compact launcher, likely in April.
Economic exploitation of the Arctic is one of Russian President Vladimir Putin's key goals as the Arctic holds huge oil and gas reserves.
The satellite was created by 12 students from the institute who collaborated with ISRO and developed the 'SriShaktiSat'.
The satellite orbits at 600 km and provides about 36-inch ground resolution within a 3x2 mile frame.
The team of scientists found about 34 UV-bright stars were found to be members of the globular cluster.
The scientists first developed the techniques at South Africa's Addo Elephant National Park.
NASA's mix of Earth-observing satellites and instruments on the ISS have captured some views of the Earth during the year 2020.
Takao Doi said all satellites that re-enter Earth’s atmosphere “burn and create tiny alumina particles which will float in the upper atmosphere for many years”.
The PSLV is 44-metre-high and has four stages with six strap-on booster motors on to the first stage that gives its a higher thrust during the initial flight moments.
Sometime this month, Sentinel-6 will be moved higher from an initial orbit to its operational orbit, where it will trail Jason-3 by 30 seconds so scientists can cross-check the data to ensure continuity.
The incident has drawn focus to the increasing traffic in outer space, particularly in low-Earth orbit.
An astronomer went on to give a detailed explanation of the close approach on social media.
The distance to the object was also determined by scientists using a special, powerful 'geodetic' laser.
The anomaly’s 'valley' – the area that had the weakest magnetic field strength – has split into two lobes, the agency has said.
