ISRO sets world record, launches 104 satellites into orbit in a single mission

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/scien...nch-today.html


Sriharikota: Today at 9.30 am, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) marked its name in history by setting a new world record after launching 104 satellites into orbit in a single mission. The launch saw PSLV-C37 pushing a mindboggling 104 satellites into orbit.

Of the 104 satellites, 101 satellites were from international clients. Of the 101 international co-passenger nano-satellites, 96 are from the US, and one each from Israel, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates. The weight of all the satellites at launch totals 1,378 kg.

ISRO record launch

The countdown for the launch of PSLV-C37/Cartosat2 Series satellite mission began at 5:28 AM soon after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board gave its approval for lift off, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said.

ISRO record launch

What is significant about the launch is the number of satellites carried by a rocket. Compared to successful launch by the Russian Space Agency launching 37 satellites in one go, India has now become the first country to set a world record by launching 104 satellites in a single mission.

ISRO record launch

This mission was ISRO's second successful attempt after launching 23 satellites in one go in June 2015. PSLV first launched the 714 kg CARTOSAT-2 Series satellite for earth observation and then injected the 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664 kg at lift-off into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, about 520 km from Earth. ISRO scientists have used the XL Variant — the most powerful rocket — earlier used in the ambitious Chandrayaan and during the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).

ISRO record launch

Out of the 101 co-passenger satellites onboard, a total of 96 belong to USA alone, five are from International customers to ISRO, which include Israel, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, respectively. Two Indian nano satellites, weighing a total of around 1,378 kg, also rode piggyback on the PSLV rocket. The nano-satellites belonging to international customers were launched as part of the arrangement by Antrix Corporation Ltd (ANTRIX) the commercial arm of the ISRO.

ISRO record launch

Cartosat-2 Series, which is the primary satellite, will be similar to the earlier four satellites in Cartosat-2 Series. After coming into operation, it will provide remote sensing services. Images sent by it will be useful for coastal land use and regulation, road network monitoring, distribution of water and creation of land use maps, among others. Cartosat-2 Series has a mission life of five years.

ISRO record launch

The two Indian Nano-satellites INS-1A and INS-1B were developed as co-passenger satellites to accompany bigger satellites on PSLV. The primary objective of INS (ISRO Nano Satellite) is to provide an opportunity for ISRO technology demonstration payloads, provide a standard bus for launch on demand services.

INS-1A carries Surface Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function Radiometer and INS-1B caries Earth Exosphere Lyman Alpha Analyser as payloads.


In its 39th flight, the PSLV launched the 714-kg Cartosat-2 satellite for earth observation and 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664kg, at lift-off. The satellites have been successfully placed in an orbit 505km above the Earth.

Watch the live feed below where ISRO has set the world record with the PSLV-C37 launch today:

ISRO has confirmed that all the 104 satellites were sucessfully seperated from the launch vehicle and are being placed into their respective orbits.

After the launch, PM Narendra Modi congratulated ISRO team for successful launch of 104 satellites: space agency chief A S Kiran Kumar.

ISRO for the first Time Planning to Visit Venus and Revisit Mars Soon




ISRO Venus Mission: India is all set to make its debut entry to Venus and also re-visit the Red Planet, Mars very soon. This exciting news comes ahead of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) planning to undertake its mega launch where it will load a grand 104 satellites in space in a single mission.
ISRO for the first Time Planning to Visit Venus and Revisit Mars Soon.

This is the first time for a country to send more than 100 satellites in a single attempt under a single mission. Russia holds the world record of sending 37 satellites in 2014 in a single launch using a modified intercontinental ballistic missile. If everything goes as planned, on 15 February, ISRO will create a history by sending 107 satellites in a single mission into space using the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). It is going to send three Indian satellites and 101 small foreign satellites.

India is hoping to improve the previous world record by monumental two-and-a-half time. ISRO is in full readiness to set an enviable benchmark for the space fairing nations.

ISRO to send grand 107 satellites into space on 15th Feb

Prime Minister Narendra Modi government seems so very pleased with the Indian space agency as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley gave the Department of Space a gigantic 23 per cent hike in its budget. In the budget for space sciences section, it was mentioned: “for Mars Orbiter Mission II and Mission to Venus”.

ISRO is planning to revisit Mars likely in 2021-2022 and it is also planning to put a robot on the surface of the Red Planet. The first mission to Mars that took place in 2013 was totally Indian one, while this time French space agency is willing to collaborate in making the Mars rover. The second visit to Mars may aim at doing good science as the first visit mostly aimed at beating China to the orbit of Mars, which the MOM did tremendously.

The first mission to Venus is going to be a modest orbiter mission. About this mission, NASA and ISRO have already initiated talks this month to jointly carry out studies on using electrical propulsion for powering this mission.
