The first satellite launched in India in 1960, the first Indian satellite to reach orbit, was the Westinghouse satellite.
It was called Westingham-5.
The first Indian telecommunications satellite was launched in 1962 and India’s first internet service was launched at the end of the 1980s.
The country’s first nuclear reactor was launched on July 12, 1963.
In 1984, the country’s second-largest city, Hyderabad, was declared a National Disaster Memorial.
In 1985, the United Nations designated Hyderabad as a World Heritage Site and in 1994, it became the first city in the world to be awarded the prestigious James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
It was also the first country to launch a satellite into space.
The country’s third satellite was named after the world’s first astronaut, who was born on March 4, 1952 in New Delhi.
Its name is the first of two to be changed from India to China in 1993.
The fourth and final satellite was designated after the last Indian to have completed a mission: in October 1997, a team of scientists and engineers of China’s National Space Engineering Center (CNEC) successfully launched the first communication satellite, China 2.
The Chinese government announced in 2008 that the first ever satellite would be launched from the country.
The satellite, called Wukong-5, is India’s most powerful satellite.
In the year 2019, the world was watching a new satellite from China, the Tiangong-1, that was scheduled to be launched in 2021.
The Tiangon-1 is the world first space-based communications satellite and was launched from an orbital orbit.
The world watched as China’s Chang Zheng-9 spacecraft successfully launched a satellite from the earth.
It had a diameter of 17,857 km and weighed 1,715 kilograms.
By the end, the satellite was orbiting the earth at a height of 6,700 km and a mass of about 1,000 kg.
With the launch of the Wukong satellite, the nation’s top space scientists have been able to establish the first direct links between Earth and space.
And with this launch, the Chinese government is expected to have achieved a milestone that no one else has ever reached.
“This satellite will serve as a model for India and its future,” said Sunil Seth, the director general of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the countrys space agency.
“It will give a blueprint for our space programme, for a new space-faring nation.”
The Wukong is a six-metre-tall satellite.
The shape of the satellite is reminiscent of a Chinese jade statue, and its two fins are a representation of the Sun.
The satellites’ diameter is 4.5 km.
It weighs about 1.8 tonnes and is 1,200 metres long.
It is expected that the spacecraft will reach an altitude of 10,000 km and the satellite will reach the earth’s surface.
As per the Indian space agencies own official mission plan, the mission will take about two months.
“Wukong-1 will serve to demonstrate the potential of India’s space programme,” Seth told The Hindu in an interview.
“I hope it will be the first step towards establishing a satellite which can provide communication services to other countries.
This will be a major step in the Indian exploration of space.”
In March 2018, the Indian government signed a contract for a five-year contract worth about Rs. 1,300 crore to launch Wukong with the Chinese National Satellite Corporation (CNSC) and the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) as the primary payloads.
However, in June 2018, India cancelled the contract with CNSC because of its financial issues.
“This was a major blow to our space industry,” said Gyanvendra Singh, the chairman of the National Space Research Board.
Singh said the cancellation of the contract had a big impact on India’s development.
“We were looking forward to launching Wukong, which we had promised for many years,” he said.
“The cancellation had a major impact on our space programmes.”
While the Widget-1 was supposed to take the Indian public on a journey of a lifetime, it did not happen.
The Indian Space agency had hoped to launch the satellite by 2021.
After the cancellation, India went ahead with its ambitious programme of sending satellites into orbit, including two in 2019.
In October 2019, a total of 10 satellites were launched in the form of a two-stage rocket called the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).
They were all to be placed in polar orbits.
The PSLV is powered by the Polar rocket engine, which is also the engine that powers the first Russian space shuttle.
At the end on September 27, 2020, Wukong fell into the ocean at 10:47 a.m.
