Amazon Quiz (July 18, 2021): NISAR is a joint Earth-observing mission between ISRO and which other space agency?
Description: The NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission aims to co-develop and deploy a dual-frequency synthetic aperture radar aboard an Earth observation satellite.
The satellite will be the first to employ multiple frequencies for radar imaging. It will be used for remote sensing, which will let scientists study and comprehend Earth's natural processes.
Its left-facing sensors, for example, will examine the Antarctic cryosphere.
NISAR is expected to be the world's most costly Earth-imaging satellite, with a total cost of US$1.5 billion.
