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

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Friday launched 31 satellites from different countries on a single mission.

The 28 worldwide customer satellites are being launched as part of the commercial arrangements between ISRO and Antrix Corporation Ltd., a company under Department of Space.

To date, ISRO has launched more than a hundred national and foreign satellites, as well as Chandrayaan-I; its Orbital Mission to Mars (Mangalayaan), and its first space observatory, Astrosat. "After that we had a rigorous set of operations to ensure a robust launch and it was resolved for a successful launch now", Isro chairman Kiran Kumar said.
