Good to see a satellite covering natural disaster prevention and coverage in real time. Well done ISRO.
This is an unfortunate failure.
2nd failed launch .
Debrief will cover all issues to ensure next launch will be successful .
Never give up space exploration .
Every country that endeavors space flight has a number of launches that turned in learning events.
