ISRO new launchpad in Tamil Nadu to save fuel, increase payload capacity

ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is set to come up with the country's second spaceport in Tamil Nadu's Kulasekarapattinam and this launchpad will be having a strategic advantage over the launch pads in Sriharikota. With the new spaceport, small satellite launch vehicles (SSLV) can fly straight to the south pole without burning fuel to swerve around Sri Lanka on the way. On Saturday, ISRO chief K Sivan had said the land acquisition for India's second rocket launch centre at Kulasekarapattinam in Tamil Nadu's Tuticorin is progressing and further work will progress after this is done.
