Let's know, how the first remote sensing satellite 'Bhaskar-1' helped India to make its mark in space...

 Nearly four years after the launch of the country's first indigenous satellite 'Aryabhata', India launched its first experimental remote sensing satellite Bhaskar-1. It was launched from the Volgograd Space Station (in present-day Russia) on June 7, 1979. It weighed 442 kg and had a life span of only one year. This satellite to be installed in low earth orbit was a big success for ISRO. In the 75th year of independence, under the Amrit Mahotsav series, know how 'Bhaskar-1' helped India to make its mark in space ...

After launching the 'Aryabhata' satellite in the year 1975, ISRO got another big success in the year 1979. Bhaskar-1, the first experimental remote sensing satellite built by ISRO, was launched on June 7, 1979, from the Volgograd launch station in the erstwhile Soviet Union (presently in Russia) via the C-1 Intercosmos Vehicle. This was India's first attempt to send an experimental remote sensing satellite into space. ISRO got great success in this very first attempt. This satellite was named after the great Indian mathematician Bhaskara.

Objective of Bhaskar-1: The main objective of Bhaskar-1 satellite was to collect data on hydrology (hydrology), oceanography (oceanography), forestry (forestry) and telemetry. This satellite was India's first 'Low Orbit Earth Observation Satellite'. It weighed 442 kg at the time of launch. The satellite was equipped with a TV camera and a three-band satellite microwave radiometer. The function of television camera sensor was to collect data related to hydrology, forestry and geology, while the function of microwave radiometer system was to study ocean, water vapor etc. The data collected from this was very helpful for scientists in better understanding the land-sea-atmosphere interaction. It also helped a lot in forecasting the weather.

A fortnight after its launch on June 7, 1979, Bhaskar-1's microwave radiometer system was successfully commissioned. It began sending useful data on the temperature distribution over the subcontinent and neighboring seas, the processes of vaporization in the atmosphere, and rainfall and humidity over the surface of the Indian Ocean. The satellite's microwave radiometer system was working, but the second major part failed. The satellite cameras were shut down for almost a year due to a power failure. However, later one of its cameras started functioning on 16 May 1980 and it sent images of cloud formation over the Bay of Bengal. The mission life of this satellite was one year and orbit life was about 10 years. In this sequence, the second satellite Bhaskar-2 was launched in November 1981. Bhaskar-1 sent large-scale data, which was used for various research and studies including oceanography. The launch of Bhaskar-1 was the first such step.
