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.

Steve Kerr questions media coverage of LaVar Ball
This marked the Lakers' first double-double from a player without the use of points dating back to Lamar Odom back in 2008. Lopez then missed from long range on what he admitted was a heat-check shot, but Ball was under the basket for a putback.

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.
