ISRO about to break its own record

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all geared up to launch a record number of 20 satellites in a single rocket on Wednesday, June 22. This is going to be the maximum number of satellites that ISRO has been able to launch in a single mission, so far it has been 10. The rocket will be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota.


PSLV – Payload

The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will carry India’s 725.5 kg Cartosat-2 series satellite, meant to map the cartographic information of the earth’s surface. The other 19 satellites include LAPAN-A3 (Indonesia), BIROS (Germany), M3MSat (Canada), SkySat Gen2-1 (U.S.), GHGSat-D (Canada), 12 Dove Satellites (U.S.), Sathyabamasat (Sathyabama University, Chennai) and Swayam satellites (College of Engineering, Pune). ISRO has launched 57 satellites of foreign countries on 18 different PSLV missions.

ISRO till today has launched many space missions and almost all of what ISRO has achieved is by indigenous, space and launch technologies. The world denied India space technology, ISRO rose up to the challenge and delivered. Tomorrow will be one more such day which ISRO is confident of making history.

The Logical Indian is proud of what ISRO is doing and we wish them all the success tomorrow and in the future projects.
