SRMSAT-1 launched in Space on 12 October 2011 completes 40,000 orbits in Space

“SRMSAT-1 launched in Space on 12 October 2011 completes 40,000 orbits in Space today (12th July, 2019)”.  We are proud of our students who built and launched with the help of ISRO in 2011.  The MicroSAT was originally  meant to be in orbit for TWO years! Nevertheless, it is still in orbit completing its 40,000 revolution around the globe sending data (CO2 level as well as level of water vapour in space) to our ground station located in SRMIST, Kattankulathur and these images were captured from ground control centre. On October 12, 2019, SRMSAT-1 completes its 9 years in Orbit!
