ISRO Creates Another History; Launches Record 104 Satellites In One Go

ISRO Creates Another History; Launches Record 104 Satellites In One Go

We had earlier reported that ISRO will now launch a mission for Venus, which would be India's first; and a second mission to Mars, for which, NASA is keen on partnering with India.

The ISRO will use a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-C37 (PSLV-C37) launcher from the Satish Dhavan Space Centre at Sriharikota, India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulates ISRO on the successful launch mission.

Scientists at ISRO have continuously done the country proud.

AS Kiran Kumar - the Chairman of ISRO AS Kiran Kumar said that they initially thought of launching 3 satellites of 730 KG.

According to the ISRO, the worldwide customer satellites were launched under commercial arrangements between Antrix Corporation Limited (Antrix), a government of India company under the Department of Space, the commercial arm of ISRO, and the global customers. The department of space had been given around 23% increase in the budget. I urge ISRO to continue to strive for the progress of our space capabilities.

The total weight of all the satellites was estimated to be 1,378 kg.


Launching anything into space is extremely expensive, which is why SpaceX is spending so much time and effort developing a reusable launch vehicle for use with its Falcon rockets.

Abhishek Bachchan: And @isro gives us yet another reason to hold r heads up high.

With Wednesday's launch, the PSLV - ISRO's medium lift rocket launcher - has put 226 satellites in space, including 180 foreign satellites and 46 homegrown ones.

"This is a great moment for each and everyone of us". This space mission by ISRO will make a significant presence of India in the world.

India on Wednesday morning created a world record by successfully putting into orbit 104 satellites, including the country's own Cartosat-2earth observation satellite.

In September 2014 the country became just the fourth after the United States, the former Soviet Union and the European Space Agency to successfully guide a spacecraft into orbit around Mars.

Nano-satellite separations have begun. Salute to the team!
