ISRO launches 100th satellite

Almost four months after an unsuccessful satellite launch, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Friday sent up another rocket. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) lift off at 9:29 am on Friday from Sriharikota, 110 kms from Chennai, carrying India’s 100th satellite along with 30 others.

The surveillance satellite from the ‘Cartosat 2’ series will keep watch on India’s hostile neighbours.

  • Of the total number of satellites carried by PSLV-C40, 30 satellites will be launched into a 505 kms polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO).
  • Friday’s launch is the 42nd flight of the PSLV. The launch also marks the first launch for ISRO in 2018.
