Proud moment: PSLV- C35 launched, another milestone for ISRO:- ISRO created history today and achieved one more milestone by launching Polar Satellite Vehicle (PSLV )- C35. Notably, it was one of the longest and it’s most complex mission of ISRO. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, carrying three satellites from India, one each from Canada and US, and three from Algeria, lifted off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. ISRO informed that its launch was “100 percent successful.”
Narendra Modi congratulated via tweet
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was congratulated Indian scientists on their big achievement via twitter and said that zeal of our scientists has touched the lives of 125 crore Indians and has made India proud all across the world.
Here is the tweet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi:
Congrats @isro for setting another example of space cooperation by launching US, Canada, Algeria satellites together with its own satellite.

With this success now India has so far launched 79 satellites for International customers. According to a report, AS Kiran Kumar, chairman, ISRO said that today Indian scientists created history and it is a landmark day. Using PSLV we succeeded in launching eight satellites. And after a wait of 2 hours, the mission has gone very successful.
Mission was a big challenge because PSLV launched its payloads in two different orbits. Interestingly, the twin- orbit maneuver was accomplished bun European Space Agency’s Vega rocket.
The mission also tested the PSLV’s multiple burn capability as it will be utilized in the last leg and will help ISRO to set another milestone. According to reports, the whole procedure was completed within 2 hours- 15 minutes, which was the longest for ISRO.
What is in Future?
The Space research organization is all set to launch more satellites in near future. The launch will also include much –awaited launch of GSLV Mark III. Apart from it, the geostationary communication satellite GSAT 18 is also scheduled to be launched in early October this year.
