GSLVF10 did not launch Earth observation satellites into planned orbit

The GSLVF10 rocket of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, about 100 kilometers from Chennai, on the morning of Thursday, August 12, 2021, but could not put the satellite Earth observation EOS3. in its intended orbit. ISRO President K. Sivan said: “The technical anomaly was observed during the low temperature stage and the task could not be completed.” ISRO said on Twitter previously that “GSLVF10 has been successfully launched from the spaceport.” The envisaged task is to locate EOS03 in geostationary orbit. The satellite is expected to provide near real-time images of a large area of interest at frequent intervals, which can be used to quickly monitor natural disasters, incidents, and any short-term events.
