Capacity of rockets could increase if PSLN comes in TN: Scientist

TUTICORIN, TAMIL NADU (PTI): Capacity of rockets could increase if a Polar Satellite Launch Station (PSLN) is established in Kanyakumari or Tirunelveli districts of Tamil Nadu, which are close to the Equator, a former ISRO scientist has said.

Talking to reporters here, former ISRO scientist N Sivasubramaniam said, "Now our PSLV is carrying 1.25 tonne to 1.5 tonne capacity. Technically, we can say the capacity of rockets being launched can increase if we establish PSLN somewhere in Kulasekarapattinam or in Kanyakumari as these places were close to the Equator. It could carry up to two tonne."
