The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched its 100th satellite from the port of Sriharikota on Friday morning, the space agency’s last lift-off under the chairmanship of AS Kiran Kumar.

On its 42nd mission, ISRO trusted workhorse 'PSLV-C40' carried the weather observation 'Cartosat-2' series satellite and 30 co-passengers (together weighing about 613 kg) at 9.28 am.

The 30 other satellites comprise one micro and nanosatellite each from India as well as three micro and 25 nanosatellites from six countries — Canada, Finland, France, Korea, the United Kingdom and The United States of America.




Wishes started pouring in on the microblogging site.






















Oh, and there were jokes and memes too. The 100th launch also reminded Twitterati of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
