India Launches First Commercial Satellite Payload

Here’s some interesting news:

India has gone into business in outer space, launching its first commercial rocket. The rocket was carrying an Italian astronomical satellite that will be used to gather information about the origins of the universe. India is the fifth entry into the commercial satellite launch business after the US, Russia, China, Ukraine and the European Space Agency.

I hadn’t realised Ukraine was in the business too..
