India's remote sensing satellite CARTOSAT-2F in Earth's orbit, Russia's Earth Observation Satellite has come very close to Kanopus-V. The space research organizations of both countries are closely monitoring it, but the distance of measurement of both is coming different.
On Friday, Russia's space research agency Rosskosmos said that according to the Russian rocket (TsNIIMash), on November 27, 2020, a 700-kg CARTOSAT-2F satellite came dangerously close to Kanopus-V. According to the calculations of this rocket, the minimum distance between the satellite of Russia and India is 224 meters. Rosskosmos says that both the spacecraft are designed for remote sensing of the Earth.
ISRO said - Distance is 420 meters
However, the head of the Indian Space Research Organization, ie ISRO. Sivan says that we have been monitoring this satellite for four days and it is 420 meters from the satellite of Russia. A plan will be made to deal with it when it reaches 150 meters.
