PSLV roaring into the sky 🚀
CelesTrak has GP data for 1 object from the launch (2023-057) of TeLEOS-2 and Lumelite-4 atop a PSLV-CA rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Centre on Apr 22 at 0849 UTC: thehindu.com/sci-tech/scien…. Data for the launch can be found at: https://celestrak.org/NORAD/elements/table.php?INTDES=2023-057
Was the time of the launch 08:49 UTC?
The Australian Space Agency, which is also part of the investigation, said it was looking into the possibility that it could be a part of a foreign space launch vehicle.“The agency is working to confirm whether the object could be part of a foreign space launch vehicle that has washed up on shore, and liaising with global counterparts who may be able to provide information about the object,” a spokesperson for the agency said.“As the origin of the object is unknown, the community should avoid handling or attempting to move the object.”Experts said that the object could be a part of India’s satellite launch to the moon. It is suspected to be the fuel tank of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket. The latest PSLV mission was the PSLV-55 that was successfully launched in April this year.
