After successfully launching a record-breaking number of 104 satellites using a single rocket, India has emerged as a key player in the Space surveillance and communication industry and at the same time gone ahead to prove its growing domination in the commercial market. India’s International Space Research Organisation (ISRO) achieved this unimaginable feat after the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C37 launched India’s weather observation Cartosat-2 Series satellite alongside 103 nanosatellites into Space from its space center in Sriharikota.
Although the mission was a success, it definitely was a risky affair with the fear of a possible collision since if launched on the wrong path since the satellites were launched in rapid succession every few seconds.
The Washington Post was quoted saying that this mission was another success for ISRO as it is rapidly gaining a reputation globally for its effective yet low-cost missions.
Amidst cheers and admiration from all across the globe, China, in addition to congratulating, did pass a snide remark saying that China still remains a leader. And beside that, India has not even landed on the moon yet, and hence is far from being a leader in the burgeoning space industry.
All in all, this was a proud moment for India as it made the world stop and take notice of the advancements and take heed of India as an emerging and effective power.
