At a distance of 101 kilometers from the surface of the earth, ‘Vikram-S’ fell into the sea (Bay of Bengal). India has made a strong entry into the private space sector with the 300 second ‘Mission Prabandh’. ISRO had previously given Skyroot Aerospace November 12 to November 16 for the launch of this mission. But due to bad weather, the time was set at 11:30 am on November 18.

It took 2 years to prepare Vikram-S

According to Skyroot Aerospace, work on this mission started in the year 2020. It only took two years to make Vikram-S. Vikram-S is equipped with solid fuel propulsion, advanced avionics and carbon fiber core structure. Skyroot Aerospace has communicated that its body weight is 545 kg, length 6 m and diameter 0.375 m.

So far, ISRO has launched its own missiles, but this was the first time ISRO launched a private company’s mission from its launch pad. According to the experts, the government now wants the burden of small missions that rested on ISRO to be transferred to private sector participation. This is so that the burden of ISRO’s small missions is reduced and the Indian space agency ISRO can concentrate on large missions.
