PM congratulates ISRO team for the successful launch of its 100th satellite

My heartiest congratulations to ISRO and its scientists on the successful launch of PSLV today.

"PSLV-C40 will be launched from the First Launch Pad (FLP) of Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota", ISRO said in a statement earlier.

The successful orbiting of the satellites by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C-40 comes four months after the Indian space Research Organisation's mission to launch backup navigation spacecraft IRNSS-1H onboard PSLV-39 ended in a rare failure.

"The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C40) deployed India's 710-kg Cartosat and 10-kg nano satellite and 100-kg micro-sat along with 28 foreign satellites into the Earth's orbit after a ideal lift-off from the launch pad", said outgoing Indian Space Research Organisation Chairman AS Kiran Kumar at the mission control facility, about 80km northeast of Chennai.

Isro's Cartosat constellation consists of a series of satellites in sun-synchronous orbit making panchromatic and multispectral images of the Earth's surface.

The launch of the second national probe to the Moon: Chandrayaan-2 (lunar vehicle, in Sanskrit) in March 2019, is among the most striking proposals.

That's where TheDream.US comes in. "He landed in this country alone and unable to speak English", Bezos said. Earlier this week, Bezos became the richest person of all time when his net worth reached $105.1 billion.

They play next in San Antonio on March 3. " Luke walton is a terrific young coach who's bringing along a young team". Should Lonzo Ball solidify things at guard, the team may be on the rise in future seasons.

Atwal determined to win EurAsia Cup
Yet, Europe, who are also preparing for the Ryder Cup against the USA later this year, were not willing to take Asia lightly. So for me, it has been a little bit of a challenge but it's fun, as well".

The fourth stage of the PSLV fired twice for short durations to achieve a polar orbit of 385km altitude in which India's Microsat separated.

The 31 satellites were placed in two different orbits in one mission, in one of the keenly watched missions that comes after a failed launch in August a year ago.

The 1st two satellites of this series were carried as co-passenger payloads by PSLV-C37 in February 2017.

The performance of the deployed Cartosat-2 was satisfactory as monitored by the mission control facility, Kumar added. Sivan is set to take charge as the new Isro chairman by next week.

The 28 satellites from other countries were launched as a part of a commercial arrangement made between India's space agency and Antrix Corporation Ltd.

The co-passenger satellites comprise one Microsatellite and one Nanosatellite from India as well as 3 Microsatellites and 25 Nanosatellites from six countries, namely, Canada, Finland, France, Republic of Korea, UK and USA.
