On February 15, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched a record number of 104 satellites from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The mission is anticipated to be a success and if that happens this will be a world record for launching a record number of satellites on one single rocket.

The importance of this mission is that it is the largest number of satellites launched by a single rocket. The record is held by Russian Space Agency that earlier launched 37 satellites which have been broken by India with a record number of 104 satellites. Of these 104 satellites, 96 are from the Unites States of America, one each from Israel, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Switzerland and United Arab Emirates. The total weight of these satellites combined is 1,378 kg.

Apart from other countries, India has two satellites on the PSLV, INS – 1A that carries Surface Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function and INS – 1B carries Earth Exosphere Lyman Alpha Analyser as payloads. The main goal of this mission is to maintain a standard for launch on demand services.

This mission has pleased the Central Government and they have announced an increase in the annual budget allocated to ISRO by 23 percent.
