The India-made Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) put the Agile astronomical satellite into its intended orbit about 550 kilometres (325 miles) above the earth 20 minutes after blast-off. http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticleNew.asp? xfile=data/subcontinent/2007/April/subcontinent_Ap ril892.xml&section=subcontinent&col="
