‘India’s GPS’ Remains Unfinished as ISRO PSLV Mission Fails After 20 Years ISRO

On August 31, the PSLV C39 mission launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) failed. The mission was to launch the IRNSS 1H satellite, slated to be part of the network of seven satellites of the regional GPS system India has been setting up over the last four years. 1H itself was going to replace 1A, launched in 2013, after a timekeeping system onboard the latter failed completely last year.
