India launches 104 satellites into orbit
    2017-February-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    INDIA’S space agency said it successfully launched more than 100 foreign nano satellites into orbit yesterday aboard a single rocket.

    The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said the nano satellites — those weighing less than 10 kilograms — were sent into orbit on board its polar satellite launch vehicle in southern India.

    The agency said the launch of the 104 satellites was a record, overtaking Russia’s feat of sending 37 satellites in a single launch in 2014. The nano satellites belong to various companies in the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Israel, the Netherlands and Kazakhstan, according to the ISRO.

    “All 104 satellites were successfully placed in orbit,” the Press Trust of India news agency quoted ISRO Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar as saying. They included an Indian earth observation satellite.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted that the “remarkable feat by ISRO is yet another proud moment for our space scientific community and the nation.”

    India has been striving to become a player in the multibillion-dollar space launch market, and has successfully placed light satellites into orbit in recent years. (SD-Agencies)
