The launch of the 100th satellite by ISRO signifies both its glorious achievements, and also the bright future of India's space programme.

After the successful launch of PSLV-C40 on Friday, scientists and directors of Isro units here, including Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) and Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC), are back.

The satellites were launched in two orbits, 30 of them at 550 kilometers from the earth and the remaining at 359 kilometers.

The sensitive cameras installed in 710kg Cartosat-2 series enables the satellites to take continuous images of the earth, which can be used for a variety of land information applications such as urban and rural planning, mapping, laying pipelines, and monitoring geographical assets.

PSLV-C40 lifts off from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh state, about 110 kilometers (69 miles) northeast of Chennai, India, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018.

It will not be a contest between me and (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi. Similarly, other parties are also up to some mischief or the other.

The 28 global customer satellites are being launched as part of the commercial arrangements between ISRO and Antrix Corporation Ltd., a company under Department of Space.

More than half of the micro and nano satellites launched were for the United States, with the remainder for India, Canada, Finland, France, South Korea and Britain, Reuters reported. Then another GSLV MK-II is planned to launch Chandrayaan-II moon mission in April.

Recognized by experts, the Indian space program is considered one of the most efficient and active in the world for its quality and quantity, despite having much less budget than other similar projects.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had suffered a setback after the failure of the earlier PSLV-C39 mission in August a year ago.
