Indian PSLV Suffers Payload Fairing Failure During 41st Launch


The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched their Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) with the IRNSS-1H navigation satellite at 13:29 UTC, August 31st 2017. Shortly into the flight the payload fairing failed to separate, the resultant extra weight on the rocket resulted in a lower than expected orbit, and of course a useless satellite stuck within it’s payload fairing.

This marks the first failure for PSLV since 1997.
