India launches Brazil’s Amazonia-1 satellite into space

In the statement made by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), it was reported that the satellite was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center on Sriharikota Island in Andhra Pradesh state with the Indian-made PSLV rocket.

In the statement, it was stated that the rocket carries 18 small satellites belonging to the USA and India, as well as the Amazonia-1 satellite.

Amazonia-1, the first satellite independently designed, built and operated by Brazil, is important in terms of observing the Amazon Rainforests from space, which have been destroyed by large fires in recent years.
