PSLV-C37/Cartosat - 2 Series Satellite Launch
Space agency ISRO on February 15, 2017 scripted history by successfully launching a record 104 satellites, including India's earth observation satellite, on a single rocket from the Sriharikota spaceport.
This is the highest number of satellites ever launched in a single mission.
Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C37 blasted off at 9:28 AM from the first launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre and first injected Cartosat-2 series satellite into orbit followed by the other 103 nano satellites, including 96 from the U.S, in a gap of about 30 minutes.
