Edusat launch 'soon'

`Edusat', a dedicated satellite built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for educational purposes, would be launched shortly, former chairman of the agency Dr. K. Kasturirangan said in Chennai.

Much of the course material developed by the National Programme on Technology Learning, would be beamed by the satellite, he said while presiding over the 41st convocation of the IIT, Chennai.

Kasturirangan, who is the chairman of the Board of Governors of the IIT, said the institute was partnering with other IITs and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, in a national initiative of engineering education relating to earthquakes.
