Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) created history by successfully launching 104 satellites on a single mission on February 15. PSLV-C37 lifted off from Sriharikota on a clear Wednesday morning with 104 satellites - 101 of them belonging to other countries.
Within 28 minutes, all of the earth-observation satellites were placed in their orbits. That's a record by many an Astronomical Unit, considering that the last one was set by a Russian rocket when it lifted off with 37 satellites in June 2014. It's also a huge improvement on ISRO's own performance of 23 satellites set in June 2015.
ISRO has now released video footage from the onboard camera of the PSLV-C37, providing a ‘selfie’ view of the entire mission.
