Chennai: ISRO has launched its 100th satellite along with 30 others in a single mission, from the First Launch Pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota about 110 kms from here today at 9.29 am.

India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, in its forty second flight (PSLV-C40), launched the 710 kg Cartosat-2 Series Satellite for earth observation and 30 co-passenger satellites together weighing about 613 kg at lift-off.

The co-passenger satellites carried by the 44.4-metre-tall rocket comprise one micro and nano satellite each from India as well as three micro and 25 nanosatellites from six countries — Canada, Finland, France, Korea, the United Kingdom and United States of America. The total weight of all the 31 satellites carried on-board PSLV-C40 is about 1,323 kgs.

A 28-hour countdown for the launch had begun on Wednesday.
