Flying its 39th mission since it became operational in 1993, the PSLV — called PSLV-C37 for Wednesday’s mission — delivered into space a payload of 1,378 kg in its 38th consecutive successful flight.
Consider this to be a swift boost for the Indian morale to stratospheric levels. With its 35th successful PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle ) mission, this is a proud moment for India – its homegrown space agency has successfully transcended the records established by Russia and the United States.
The PSLV-C37 (Indian rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) was lifted off successfully from the spaceport of Sriharikota, about 125 km from Chennai.
PSLV-C37 rocket launch: PM Narendra Modi took to Twitter to congratulate ISRO for its remarkable feat of sending 104 satellites into the orbit using single rocket.
ISRO satellite launch: At 9,28 am on Wednesday, PSLV-37 successfully lifted off from the spaceport at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
ISRO’s PSLV-C37 will inject into orbit 104 satellites from 7 countries, nearly 3 times the highest number flown by a single mission currently.
If all goes according to plan, ISRO will hurl into space using the PSLV three Indian satellites and a 101 small foreign satellites.
The Chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) AS Kiran Kumar said “we are making use of technology to address the problems faced on earth.
The C25 stage is the most powerful upper stage developed by ISRO and uses Liquid Oxygen and Liquid Hydrogen propellant combination.
ISRO has successfully realigned the orbit of its Mars Orbiter Mission ‘Mangalyaan’ so it is not affected by long-duration eclipse
ISRO plans to maximise its return on investments on rocket launches by optimally using their capacity
The space agency had earlier planned a launch of 83 satellites in the last week of January, of which 80 were foreign ones.
The PSLV C36 is the 38th flight of ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle.
TeamIndus is the only Indian team in the Google Lunar X contest, and has tied up with ISRO for its rover.
The rocket’s main cargo is the 371 kg SCATSAT-1 for ocean and weather related studies.
