India Successfully Launches 100th Satellite Into Space

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday congratulated the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on the successful launch of its 100th satellite, and said the step is a "big landmark in India's journey into the space". “ISRO is starting 2018 with the successful launch.

Nellore: Putting aside the doubts over its performance, following the failure of its earlier flight (PSLV-C39) in August a year ago, Isro's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle was back with a bang, enhancing confidence of scientists on its prowess. It was the second mission to the moon from India and Isro's target to explore lunar surface with a rover. The total weight of all the 31 satellites carried onboard PSLV-C40 is about 1323 kg.

The PSLV has so far successfully launched 51 Indian satellites and 237 foreign satellites, ISRO said.

The co-passenger satellites include a microsatellite and one nanosatellite from India along with 3 microsatellites and 25 nanosatellites from other countries.

With failure of the PSLV-C39 mission launched in August 31, fresh in their minds, the entire Isro team was glued to their computer systems at the Mission Control Room holding their breath as the PSLV zoomed into the space from India's spaceport. For instance, ISRO successfully launched the Mars Orbiter Mission called Mangalyaan in 2014 at a cost that was just a fraction of the budget of Hollywood Sci-Fi thriller Gravity.

"The launch of the 100th satellite by ISRO signifies both its glorious achievements, and also the bright future of India's space programme", Modi said.

In February past year, the ISRO launched 104 satellites in a single mission, majority for foreign customers.
