Celebrating ISRO's Century: A Look at All The Indian Satellites Launched Till Date
ISRO has achieved yet another feat right at the start of the year. With its latest launch on Friday, the Indian Space Agency successfully marked its 100th satellite sent into the orbit over the years of its operations. As the PSLV-C40, the launch vehicle used this time to station 28 foreign and 3 Indian satellites into the orbit, took off, the total tally of the Indian satellites launched till date reached 102. The primary satellite carried onboard the PSLV-C40 was the remote sensing satellite - 'Cartosat-2', in addition to one micro and one nano Indian satellite, named Microsat and INS-1C respectively.
Over its near 5 decades of operations, the homegrown space agency has displayed its prowess in the skies beyond earth time and again. Through its periodic achievements, ISRO has not only made a rock-solid reputation for itself in the space industry but has also paved the way for other space players across the globe to help them achieve their endeavours.
