  • All You Need To Know About ISRO's 100th Satellite Launch As Countdown Begins

The 44.4-metre tall Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C40) roared into a clear sky after a flawless lift-off at 9.29 am following a 28-hour countdown. "The PSLV had a very successful run up to its 39th mission (PSLV-C39), which was a setback as the heat shield failed to separate", Annadurai had stated.

Earlier, at the end of the 28-hours countdown, the 44.4 meters tall PSLV-C40 in its 42nd flight, lifted off at 9.29 am and soared into a cloudy sky from the first launch pad.

With the successful launch, including 28 satellites from foreign countries, by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), ISRO put behind a rare failure it encountered four months ago. The spaceport Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota High Altitude Range (SDSC-SHAR) is located about 80 km northeast of Chennai off the Bay of Bengal coast.

ISRO is helping not just India but several other countries in putting communication, navigation and other satellites into orbit.

The micro satellite would be India's 100th satellite in space around the earth's orbit.

Present at the Sriharikota mission centre, ISRO's AS Kiran Kumar, said, "During the last PSLV launch we had problems, today what has happened proves that the problem was properly addressed and rectified".

The six strap-on solid rocket boosters - four ignited on the ground and two in the air - will all complete their burns and jettison from the PSLV by T+plus 1 minute, 32 seconds. It weighs 710 kg and is used for earth observation. ISRO had successfully launched Cartosat-2 Series satellite on June 22, 2016.

The 28 worldwide customer satellites were launched as part of the commercial arrangements between ISRO and its commercial arm Antrix Corporation Ltd. "This is a technology demonstrator and the forerunner for future satellites of this series", the ISRO said.
