Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion - Sept 2016

I never suggested it explicitly nor implied that. My post was a comment about the differences in the ejection of satellites in the beginning of the process (cartosat INS, etc) and the satellites that came later on, especially towards the end (5:10). The camera showed some clear differences. The dat...

By contrast, the first nanosat orbit is about 1 km higher, starting at 511 kms and the last few ones are at 524 kms. The vertical separation between them is 13 kilometers. Are you suggesting that they will all be in distinct orbits? My understanding is that several of the doves will share an orbit....

Some have argued that is this an artifact due to distortion of camera image (or something along those lines). No sir., that was only part of the argument - not the whole. Couple that with ejection of sats 'sideways' (as you mention) to get the complete picture of your own query. Also check out Plan...

^^ Check your video you linked around 1:28 - 1:30.

^M2k on initial induction was more like a 2-legged chicken. It was the hardwork, courage, determination and bravery of IAF to make it into a fighting aircraft which Dassault so leveraged into profits. Without IAF's inputs while operationalizing it - M2K would have been a colorful rooster at best.
