India Launched 104 Satellites As One Record Rocket

Ngebray.com,- India’s launch Wednesday of 104 satellites from a single rocket lands it in the record books. The Indian Space Research Organization deployed the most satellites by any country in a single launch. The previous record was held by Russia for sending 37 satellites into orbit in 2014.

 

ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle deployed three satellites from India and 101 from foreign countries including the U.S. The satellites will be used for Earth mapping, communication, and monitoring, among other purposes. The mission strengthens India’s role as a cost- effective and reliable hub for launching satellites, amid rising competition against China in the global space race.
