India is on the verge of creating history by launching 104 satellites from countries such as United States, Netherlands, Israel, UAE, Kazakhstan and Switzerland.
On February 15, 2016, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) will launch these satellites (101 Foreign, 3 Indian) into space by its proven workhorse PSLV – C37 from Sriharikota spaceport in Andhra Pradesh.
An ISRO official reported,
“We have tentatively decided to launch the satellites at one go around 9 AM into the sun-synchronous orbit, about 500 km above the earth. A 320-tonne rocket — Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C37) — will launch all the satellites with a combined weight of 1,500 kg, including the 650 kg remote-sensing Cartosat-2 and two nano-satellites (IA and IB) weighing 15 kg each.”
If ISRO can achieve this feat, then India will be the first country to do so. Best Luck ISRO scientists.
