PSLV camera captures spectacular ‘selfie’ as ISRO’s rocket took off February 16, 2017

New Delhi: As India went into record books by launching most satellites in one go, a high-resolution camera fitted on top of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) cheered the scientists at the ISRO centre.

Exactly at 9:28 am, ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C37 carrying 104 satellites blasted off from the first launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre.

About 28 minutes into the flight, PSLV first injected Cartosat-2 series satellite into orbit, followed by the other 103 nano satellites, including 96 from the US, in a gap of about 30 minutes.

This is the highest number of satellites ever launched in a single mission
