India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle successfully returned to flight January 12. The PSLV lifted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at 10:59 pm EST January 11 (0359 GMT January 12) and placed into orbit a Cartosat 2 imaging satellite and 30 secondary payloads. Among the secondary payloads were four Dove cubesats for Planet, four Lemur-2 cubesats for Spire, a prototype broadband smallsat for Telesat and the first synthetic aperture radar smallsat for Finnish company Iceye. The launch was the first for the PSLV since an August mission that failed when the rocket's payload fairing did not separate.
