For the first time, a Brazilian satellite was launched by an Indian rocket from Sriharikota spaceport on Sunday. This also marked Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) first launch of 2021.
Congratulating the Brazilian team post-launch, ISRO Chief K Sivan said, “In this mission, India and ISRO, feel extremely proud to launch the first satellite designed, integrated by Brazil. The satellite is in very good health. I congratulate the Brazilian team.”
