"India successfully launched 104 satellites in a single mission on Wednesday, setting what its space agency says is a world record of launching the most satellites at one go".
"All 104 satellites successfully placed in orbit".
This is the highest number of satellites ever launched in a single mission. The space agency's trusted workhorse PSLV-C37 took off in the morning at 9:28 am from Sriharikota space centre with 104 satellites among them 101 satellites belongs to worldwide customers. "The successful launch is yet another feather in the cap of India's ambitious space programme that has earned a reputation of offering a reliable low cost alternative to existing worldwide players", it said. PSLV first launched the 714 kg CARTOSAT-2 Series satellite for earth observation and then injected 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664 kg at lift-off into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, about 520 km from Earth.
What is significant about the launch is the number of satellites carried by a rocket.
Out of the 101 co-passenger satellites onboard, a total of 96 belong to US alone, five are from worldwide customers to ISRO, which include Israel, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, respectively.
ISRO created history by launching 104 satellites on Wednesday: Three are Indian and 101 are foreign and smaller satellites.
It puts a wide margin between it and the next record holder, the Russian Space Agency that launched 37 satellites in 2014.
According to the chair of the space agency, Kiran Kumar, the feat was not aimed at breaking world records, but rather the team behind the deployment were "just trying to maximise our capability with each launch and trying to utilise that launch for the ability it has got, and get the maximum in return". However, for China the sheer scale of investment in space is what matters.
