India scripted a new chapter in the history of space exploration on Wednesday with the successful launch of a record 104 satellites+ by Isro's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in a single mission.
PSLV-C37 carrying the 104 satellites lifted off from the first launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 9.28am. It was PSLV's 39th flight.
Seventeen minutes later, the rocket started placing the satellites into orbit, one by one with a time-frame of about 11 minutes.
Out of the total 104 satellites placed in orbit, 101 satellites belonged to six foreign countries. They included 96 from the US and one each from Israel, the UAE, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Kazakhstan.
PSLV first injected its main payload Cartosat- 2 series, India's indigenously built earth observation satellite. It was followed by two other nanosatellites of Isro ---- INS-1A and INS-1B.
It then took less than 10 minutes for the rocket to spew out 101 passengers, which are all foreign nanosatellites, as it travelled up in altitude reaching the polar sun synchronous orbit.
Russian Space Agency held a record of launching 37 satellites in one go during its mission in June 2014. India previously launched 23 satellites in a single mission in June 2015.

Congratulations ISRO. Nation is proud of your great achievement
What a achievement...Well done ISRO...You made us proud
Congrats to ISRO for successful launch of 104 satellites in one go by PSLV 37 and creating a record. Proud of ISRO, the organisation which has come long way in its field with unparalleled success.
Some people say it's not wise to spend on ISRO. Let me ask you one question - If the govt stops spending on space program then all these scientists will go to work at NASA, then wouldn't that be considered 'Brain Drain'?
no porki comments here...lol... applying burnol on ass
Congratulations to ISRO for this Super Success. Our Army and ISRO are serving India with highly unmatched spirit
