India's space saga has certainly climbed into a new dimension with this world record breaking feat of launching 104 satellites in one single go.

As the scientists at the mission control centre broke into cheers, ISRO Chairman AS Kiran Kumar announced: "All 104 satellites successfully placed in orbit". It was previously used to launch 17 satellites from countries like Canada, the United Kingdom, and the USA into space. This was only the 15th space mission the ISRO has conducted and has had an extremely good success rate as none of its programmes has failed since 2010. PSLV first launched the 714 kg CARTOSAT-2 Series satellite for earth observation and then injected 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664 kg at lift-off into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, about 520 km from Earth. All but three of the satellites are from foreign countries, majority from the United States.

What is significant about the launch is the number of satellites carried by a rocket. Of 101 co-passenger satellites, 96 belonged to the U.S., and one each to Israel, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Switzerland and United Arab Emirates.

Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan tweeted that the launch of 104 satellites in a single mission is a glimpse of the potential Indian science holds. Earlier, the Russian Space Agency had the record of successfully launching 37 satellites. "It shows the sophistication of India's space program", Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, head of the Nuclear and Space Policy Initiative at the Observer Research Foundation, said before the launch.

Wednesday's dispatch was being observed almost by firms that place satellites in a circle since India's space organization charges significantly not as much as its rivals in Europe and North America, said C. Uday Bhaskar, the chief of the Society for Policy Studies, an open approach inquires about gathering situated in New Delhi. Also, no work has been done by the country for establishing a space station. That its customers are developed nations such as the US, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the UAE speaks volumes of the Indian Space narrative and its future. "And third, India is under pressure to compete with China and refuses to lag behind", it reads.

Pakistan, China and other enemy nations will now have to spend sleepless nights hereafter as most acts of terrorism would be under scanner and this step is also an historic moment for global peace in the coming times. "It has not yet formed a complete system", the nationalist tabloid Global Times wrote".
