ISRO to launch record 103 satellites in one go in February
Tirupati : The Indian Space Research Organisation ( ISRO) will score century in February. Not only it will score aton but also it will register its name in the record books. In February, it will launch 103 satellites in one go using its workhorse PSLV-C37. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet South Asian satellite project will take off in March.
Not only the desi, the ISRO will launch alien nation satellites including US and Germany.
However, the space agency had earlier planned a launch of 83 satellites in the last week of January, but with the addition of 20 more foreign satellites, the launch was delayed by a week.
These will be 100 micro-small satellites, which will be launched using a PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle)- C37. The weight of the payload will be 1350 kgs, of which 500-600 kgs will be the satellite’s weight.
The launch will be a major feat in country’s space history as no exercise on this scale has been attempted before.
Last year, ISRO launched 22 satellites at a go and this launch will have almost five times the number of crafts.
