INSAT-4A: First satellite of the INSAT-4 series, and India's most advanced satellite yet was launched from Kourou in French Guyana. It is designed for a lifespan of 12 years.The INSAT -- established in 1983 -- is one of the Asia Pacific region's largest domestic communication satellite systems. With a cost of 535 Crores(5.25 Billion: Bill gates could build 11 such Satelite) it will give relief to remote areas of the Country by its Direct To Home cable television services, where cable TV concept is far from reach.
