The NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite, NISAR in short, will go up in 2021

NEW DELHI:  Space scientists in India and America are on tenterhooks as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump meet for their first bilateral in Washington tomorrow.  The NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite, NISAR in short, will go up in 2021. But work has started on it at Pasadena, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Once it is in orbit, the $1.5 billion satellite is expected to provide data that lies at the heart of climate change – “motion of the tectonic plates, of the ice sheets, of the changes in vegetation over land in agriculture and forests” said Paul A Rosen, the satellite’s project scientist at Pasadena.
