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

Updated on 17 February, 2017 at 3:53 pm By

Indian space agency ISRO on February 15 scripted history when they launched a record 104 satellites in one go.

 

Adding a new chapter in the history of space exploration, ISRO has now successfully launched a record 104 satellites via Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in a single mission.

They have now outdone Russia’s previous record of 37 satellites which they launched in 2014, by a huge margin.

 

 

In PSLV’s 39th flight, the PSLV-C37 carried 104 satellites and lifted off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota at 9.28am.

Just 17 minutes later, PSLV started placing these satellites into orbit and was done within 11 minutes.

Out of these 104 satellites, 101 satellites were of foreign countries – 96 from the US and one each from Israel, UAE, Netherlands, Switzerland and Kazakhstan.

 

There were also 3 Indian satellites, one India’s indigenously built earth observation satellite and two nanosatellites of ISRO —- INS-1A and INS-1B.

Soon after the launch, PM Modi and others sent out tweets congratulating ISRO on its historic mission.
