- Nisar is the world’s most expensive earth observation satellite.
- The cost of developing Nisar has been Rs 10 crore.
- The weight of the satellite is about 2800 kg.
In a major step towards building US-India relations in civil-space cooperation, the Indian Space Agency (ISRO) has developed a special satellite in collaboration with the American Space Agency NASA (NASA). This NISAR satellite, prepared at a cost of about 10 thousand crore rupees, was developed in NASA. It reached Bangalore on Wednesday. ISRO chief Dr. S. Somnath himself went to take it to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The special thing about this satellite is that it will give information about natural events like earthquake, avalanche, sea storm etc. in advance. It is being considered as the biggest joint science mission of India and America so far.

A C-17 transport aircraft of the US Air Force reached Bengaluru carrying this NASA-ISRO satellite. Satellite and its payloads have been tested many times. ISRO will launch it next year. Before this, some necessary changes have to be made in it. It will be launched from ISRO’s most powerful GSLV-MK2 rocket. Nisar satellite is being described as the world’s most expensive earth observation satellite.
These advantages will be from satellite
This satellite will give information in advance about tornadoes, storms, volcanoes, earthquakes, melting of glaciers, sea storms, wildfires, rise in sea level, farming, wet earth, less snow etc. Information about the garbage accumulating around the earth and the dangers coming from space towards the earth will also be available from this satellite. Not only this, this satellite will keep an eye on the increasing and decreasing number of trees and plants on the earth. Information about lack of light and increase in it will also be available from Nisar.

Its weight is 2800 kg
India’s space agency ISRO will use this satellite to monitor glaciers in the Himalayas and landslide-prone areas. The weight of the SUV-sized satellite is around 2800 kg. It is equipped with both L and S-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) devices.
its radar is strong
Its radar will be so powerful that it will be able to take very clear pictures of the area up to 240 km. It will take the photo of a place on the earth again after 12 days. Because it will take 12 days to complete one round of the earth. During this, it will continue to provide pictures and data to the scientists while doing rapid sampling of different parts of the earth.
