One Year of AstroSat : New Portal Launched

A year after the successful launch of India's first multi-wavelength observational satellite Astrosat, the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) formally unveiled a portal displaying data sent by the satellite for general public.
●    The Astrosat Support Cell is a joint venture between Isro and Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), which also designed one of the payloads, instruments which collect and transmit data, on the satellite.
●    Various stakeholders of the programme met at the IUCAA on Thursday for a review of the results received from the payloads currently on the Astrosat.
●    The Astrosat has five main payloads, mainly focused on observing ultra-violet bands, hard and soft X-rays- its sources and binaries, stellar coronae, and clusters of faraway galaxies, known as quasars and blazars. 
●    The observations may help in understanding phenomena like the supernova, or the fate of galaxies.
●    Apart from the IUCAA, the payloads were developed by institutions like the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (TIFR), the University of Leicester, and the Canadian Space Agency.
