New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the Indian Space Research Organisation’s second spaceport in Tamil Nadu’s Kulasekaranpattinam on February 28.

The foundation ceremony is going to be held on February 28. PM Narendra Modi will lay the foundation of this historic project. The project is a boon in the field of science and technology for the state of Tamil Nadu.

The new spaceport will cover an area of 2,000 acres and will boost the growth and development of the region in Thoothukudi district.

Currently, rockets launched from Sriharikota must head east before turning south, necessitating a diversion due to the airspace of neighbouring Sri Lanka.

With the new spaceport, this diversion will no longer be necessary, and the location is closer to the Equator than Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, the Telangana Governor said.

Additionally, ISRO’s propulsion complex is situated in Mahendragiri, which is closer to Kulasekaranpattinam (88 km) than Sriharikota (780km). This proximity will facilitate the transportation of rocket components, reducing both time and cost.
