PSLV back after August failure, launches 31 satellites

He told mediapersons after the successful launch of PSLV-C40/Cartosat-2 series mission that the satellites included nine student ones made by some universities while hinting that they could not be counted in Isro's account.

India launched its 100th satellite on Friday as Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeks to project the country as a global low-priced provider of services in space.

Today's satellite launch took place after a failed launch four months before.

"The 28-hour countdown began at 5.29 a.m.in the mission control here for the rocket launch at 9.28 a.m. on Friday", said the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on its website.


A visibly relieved Kiran Kumar, on his final mission as the chief of the space agency, said he was happy to provide Cartosat 2 Series as a New Year gift for the country.

The Indian satellite was launched along with 30 others from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on Friday. More than half of the micro and nano satellites were for the Unites States, and the remainder India, Canada, Finland, France, South Korea and the United Kingdom. India will use its latest satellites for better border surveillance and obtaining high resolution images of the earth. The launch marks ISRO's first mission in 2018. For instance, ISRO successfully launched the Mars Orbiter Mission called Mangalyaan in 2014 at a cost that was just a fraction of the budget of Hollywood Sci-Fi thriller Gravity.

The 28 global customer satellites are being launched as part of the commercial arrangements between Antrix Corporation Limited (Antrix), a Government of India company under Department of Space (DOS), the commercial arm of Isro and the worldwide customers. "We will be definitely meeting their expectations in the future also". Shar director Kunhi Krishnan said the success was a tribute to the outgoing chairman A.S. Kirankumar and a welcome to chairman-designate Dr K. Sivan.

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.
