Any new news after today's Gaganyaan abort test?

This article from 7 October says launch is in December.

"In December of this year, ISRO will launch XPoSat, also known as the X-Ray Polarimeter Satellite."

has XPoSat launching on PSLV C58 so it might be the next PSLV launch.

PSLV, GSLV Launch
He added that the space agency is targetting November-December for at least two more launches, one on its workhorse, the PSLV, and the other on the GSLV-Mk2.
“The PSLV will launch the Xposat and also have POEM (PSLV Orbital Experimental Module) carrying scientific and commercial payloads onboard. We’ll announce these features soon. The GSLV will launch the Insat-3DS satellite, which is almost ready. The vibration tests have begun today (Friday),” Somanath said.

I had to use a little trick to copy TOI, nothing illegal.
But I left the source link there on purpose.

That is PSLV-DL C44, which flew on 24 January 2019.

Well then, it’s a real New Year’s Day launch (or New Year’s Eve if you are in the Americas!)

#Update #Space #India

India’s space activity in 2024 is expected to start with a launch on the first day, with @isro having begun last leg of pre-launch preparations to put into space #XPoSat on a #PSLV, whose last stage will host 10 other payloads after injecting main sat. 1/n

Multiple Isro officials confirmed to TOI that the launch is scheduled for January 1 as on date. With XPoSat, India is on the verge of a groundbreaking leap in space-based X-Ray astronomy. 2/n

Unlike previous missions that focused predominantly on imaging, time-domain studies, and spectroscopy, XPoSat aims to explore the polarisation of intense X-Ray sources, introducing a novel dimension to X-Ray astronomy, the space agency said. 3/n

“The mission's objectives include measuring X-Ray polarisation and conducting long-term spectral and temporal studies of cosmic X-Ray sources,” Isro said, adding that the anticipated mission life is around 5 years. 4/n

Scheduled for observation from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) at an altitude of approximately 650km and a low inclination of around 6°, XPoSat carries two payloads. These payloads enable simultaneous studies of temporal, spectral & polarisation features of bright X-Ray sources. 5/n

“The primary payload, POLIX (Polarimeter Instrument in X-rays), developed by
@RRI_Bangalore
 focuses on measuring polarimetry parameters in the medium X-ray energy range. It comprises a collimator, scatterer, and four X-ray proportional counter detectors,” Isro said. 6/n

“XSPECT (X-ray Spectroscopy and Timing), developed by UR Rao Satellite Centre, offers fast timing & excellent spectroscopic resolution in soft X-rays. It's capable of observing various sources, including X-ray pulsars, black hole binaries &active galactic nuclei,” Isro added. 7/n

Isro said XPoSat’s significance lies in its ability to act as a diagnostic tool for examining the radiation mechanism and geometry of celestial sources. 8/n

“By analysing X-Ray polarisation signatures, scientists can measure the mass and spin of accreting black holes, explore accretion flow, outflow, and jets, estimate strong magnetic fields & unveil the radiation zone and particle acceleration processes in pulsars,” Isro said. 9/n

10 Other Payloads On POEM: Aside from #XPoSAT, the main satellite, the PSLV will carry 10 more instruments to Space on its last stage — the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module or POEM. 10/n

They are; Radiation Shielding Experimental Module (RSEM)” to evaluate Tantalum coating effectiveness, by TakeMe2Space, Hyderabad; Women Engineered Satellite (WESAT)  to compare Solar Irradiance and UV Index, by LBS Institute of Technology for Women… 11/n

…BeliefSat-0, an amateur radio satellite by KJ Somaiya Institute of Technology; Green Impulse TrAnsmitter (GITA), a green bipropellant CubeSat propulsion unit  by Inspecity Space Labs Private Limited… 12/n

…Launching Expeditions for Aspiring Technologies - Technology Demonstrator  (LEAP-TD) for demonstration of subsystems of microsatellite by space startup Dhruva Space.” 13/n

The other five include, two instruments from Bengaluru based firm Bellatrix Aerospace — “RUDRA 0.3 HPGP” the green monopropellant thruster and “ARKA-200”, a heater less hollow cathode for Hall thrusters — two payloads by VSSC and one  PRL. 14/n

The two VSSC instruments are “Fuel Cell Power System (FCPS)” for demonstration of fuel cell and Silicon-based high energy cell, while the PRL payload, the Dust Experiment (DEX) will measure interplanetary dust count. n/n
