Sriharikota, Feb 15: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched a record 104 satellites on a single Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket from the Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday morning.

The PSLV-XL variant rocket, standing 44.4 metre tall and weighing 320 tonnes, tore into the morning skies at 9.28 a.m. with a deep throated growl breaking free of the earth’s gravitational pull. The earth observation satellite Cartosat-2 series weighs 714 kg.

The co-passenger satellites comprise 101 nano satellites, one each from Israel, Kazakhstan, The Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates and 96 from the United States, as well as two nano satellites from India. The total weight of all the satellites carried on-board is about 1,378 kg.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated the space agency team for the successful launch.

“Congratulations to @isro for the successful launch of PSLV-C37 and CARTOSAT satellite together with 103 nano satellites!,” Mr. Modi said in a tweet.

“This remarkable feat by @isro is yet another proud moment for our space scientific community and the nation. India salutes our scientists,” he said.
