The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to launch its 100th satellite, the Cartosat-2 Series satellite, on Friday morning from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C40), which is undertaking its 42nd mission, will carry "Cartosat-2", a weather observation satellite and 30 other satellites.

The 31 satellites include three Indian satellites and 28 satellites from six foreign countries - Canada, Finland, France, Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The total weight of all the 31 satellites carried on-board the PSLV-C40 is about 1323 kg.

Instead, according to people in the meeting, the president said the USA should accept more immigrants from places like Norway . In exchange, the USA government agreed to "defer" any action on their immigration status for a period of two years.

Today's launch comes after the unsuccessful mission of navigation satellite IRNSS-1H in 2017.

"The PSLV has performed well in the past with several successful launches", said A.S. Kiran Kumar, ISRO's chairman, in a story published by the Bangalore Mirror. While the department of space has been speaking about allowing private players to build rockets in future, which is expected to increase the frequency of launches, Sivan said: "We're already in the process of moving it to the industry and it will take some time for it to materialize". It has 31 co-passengers, including the Cartosat-2.

A solid-fueled third stage and liquid-fueled fourth stage will complete the task of placing the satellites into orbit, with separation of Cartosat 2F - the mission's prime payload - scheduled for T+plus 17 minutes, 18 seconds.

At two hours, 21 minutes and 62 seconds, this will be the longest flight of the four-stage Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).
