The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has been doing a wonderful job, achieving some historic feats over the past few years. At 9.30 am today, ISRO achieved another landmark as it successfully launched a record 104 satellites through a single rocket. The rocket took off today morning from the Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh and we are really proud of this achievement. No country has been able to achieve such a huge record and with that, ISRO has propelled itself into a league of its own.
The countdown for the launch of PSLV-C37/Cartosat-2 Series satellite mission begun soon after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board gave its approval for lift off and today the launch took place early in the morning. Post the launch, various celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Dhanush, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded this feat. Here's what they had to say:
