Indian PSLV rocket lifts off with 104 satellites
Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle developed by India is the most trusted rocket of ISRO. That's how many satellites it launched into space with its PSLV rocket - more than any other launch vehicle on the planet, ever.
Set record by Launching 104 satellites in a single mission today:- Once again, the ISRO set a record by launching a number of 104 satellites in a single mission. The rocket is supposed to launch the Cartosat-2 first and then the 103 co-passenger satellites will be launched into the orbit about 520 km from the Earth's surface.
Out of the co-passenger satellites, 96 are from the USA and the rest each are from ISRO's global customers like United Arab Emirates, Netherlands, Switzerland, Israel and Kazakhstan.

Trump has also discussed the possibility of reducing the cost of the new Air Force One Airplane with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg. He said on the campaign trail that it would cost only about $8 billion, but that seems to have been an unreasonably low estimate.
ISRO commenced the countdown for the mission at 5:28 AM just after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board gave its approval. It weighs about 1,350kg (2,976lb) and was launched from the rocket base at Sriharikota on the coast of the Bay of Bengal on a balmy afternoon in November 2013.
With Wednesday's launch, the PSLV - ISRO's medium lift rocket launcher - has put 226 satellites in space, including 180 foreign satellites and 46 homegrown ones.
The chairman of the space agency, Kiran Kumar, said his team had not set out to break records. Of the 104, 101 are foreign satellites to serve worldwide customers as India is aiming to tap more share in global space industry. It will also mark ISRO's second successful attempt in June 2015 after launching 23 satellites in one go, CNN reports. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian government are known to be an avid supporter of the organization. These two satellites carry a total of four different payloads from Space Applications Centre (SAC) and Laboratory for Electro Optics Systems (LEOS) of ISRO for conducting various experiments. Interestingly, National Dairy Organisation in Karnal was the first to create an IVF buffalo and clone a buffalo, which got recognised the world over for cheap technology.
