PM Narendra Modi congratulates ISRO for successful 100th satellite launch

"It is gratifying that PSLV-C40 was successfully launched after the last event of PSLV-C39 marginally went out in the midst due to non-separation of the heat shield that failed to release the satellite in orbit".

ISRO scientists have said that the images, which the satellites collect, will enable Indian security agency to keep a track of military activities in neighboring Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China, and Pakistan.

The PSLV on Friday ferried and deployed Cartosat-2, a 710kg Earth-mapping satellite, a 100kg Microsat, an 11kg nanosatellite and 28 foreign satellites riding piggyback in a 23-minute flight after its launch from the Indian Space Research Organisation's Sriharikota spaceport.
