ISRO XPoSat Launch: On the first day of the new year, ISRO again created history, Exposat mission launched, will reveal the secret of Black Hole – Bollywood Keeda

ISRO XPoSat Launch : Indian Space Agency ISRO has created history on the first day of the new year, 1 January 2024. ISRO has launched the X-ray Polarimeter Satellite (XPoSat) mission at 9.10 am. With this, the mystery of space and black holes can be explored. The PSLV-C58 rocket, on its 60th mission, carried the main payload ‘ExpoSat’ along with 10 other satellites, which will be placed in low Earth orbits.

Let us tell you that ISRO will reach the Moon in 2023 through Chandrayaan-3 mission and travel to the Sun through Aditya L-1 mission. After that, on the first day of the year 2024, ISRO has taken its first step in the space sector.

ISRO said that the first mission of the year, X-ray Polarimeter Satellite i.e. ‘XPoSat’ was launched from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh through the rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C58 (PSLV-C58). With the launch of the mission, India has become the second country in the world to send a specialized astronomy observatory into space to study black holes and neutron stars. Exposat is a kind of observatory for research, which will gather more information about black holes and neutron stars from space.

Why is this mission special

ISRO said that the aim of this satellite is to detect the polarization of intense X-rays coming from distant space. The mystery of which celestial body they are coming from gives a lot of information about these rays. The importance of knowing X-ray polarization has increased all over the world. This helps in understanding the objects or structures like black holes, neutron stars (high-mass parts of the star left after the explosion), the nucleus present in the center of the galaxy, etc. This will help in understanding the shape of celestial bodies and the process of producing radiation.

These 10 satellites are also to be installed along with ISRO XPoSat.
