It may look like a cube wrapped-up hurriedly in gold candy foil, but HysIS, the earth observation satellite India launched this morning, is one wicked gadget. India's space agency Isro lists the impressive-range of applications for data from HysIS: Agriculture, forestry, environmental monitoring and much more. HysIS was placed in orbit precisely 17 minutes and 27 seconds after liftoff from Sriharikota, in Andhra Pradesh.
