ISRO launches 104 satellites, India hails world record

ISRO launches 104 satellites, India hails world record”

The co-passenger satellites comprise 101 nano satellites, one each from Israel, Kazakhstan, The Netherlands, Switzerland, the UAE and 96 from the United States, as well as two nano satellites from India. Now imagine what must transpire for a successful launch of this magnitude with 104 satellites.

The development of the space technology of a country is determined by the size of its input, it said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the team on the success of the launch.

It is the first launch by the ISRO in 2017 and three more launches are planned for the first half of this year. Many announced it a "century", a term used from cricket sports when a batsman scores 100 in one inning. The mission reinforces India's emerging reputation as a reliable and cost-effective option for launching satellites.

The Times stated that the mission constituted the largest satellite constellation ever launched into space.

The countdown for the launch of PSLV-C37/Cartosat2 Series satellite mission began at 5:28 AM soon after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board gave its approval for lift off, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said.

The launch also reaffirmed India's position as a global leader in space technology. Isro's Mars mission has only cost $73 million+, compared with Nasa's Maven Mars launch, which came in at a whopping $671 million.

The Dallas Mavericks owner told the San Jose Mercury News , "I agree with the description is you remove the "et" from asset". In his response Sunday via his Twitter account, Trump said Cuban was "not smart enough to run for president".

Marking the 16th PSLV flight in "XL" configuration, the latest launch includes 101 nanosatellites, one each from Kazakhstan, Israel, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and the UAE.

"Congratulations to @isro for the successful launch of PSLV-C37 and CARTOSAT satellite together with 103 nano satellites!" All but three of the satellites are from foreign countries, majority from the United States.

The technological apartheid against India has been an issue for India's science and technology establishment from the Cold War period. Observers say it is a sign that India is emerging as a major player in the multi-billion dollar space market.

However, given the fact that only 3 of these satellites were actually Indian-made and there was no "cutting-edge" technology used, the only thing this tells us is that - in 3 years since Russian Federation made the record - satellites and other technological devices have gotten much smaller.

Wednesday's dispatch was being observed almost by firms that place satellites in a circle since India's space organization charges significantly not as much as its rivals in Europe and North America, said C. Uday Bhaskar, the chief of the Society for Policy Studies, an open approach inquires about gathering situated in New Delhi.
