ISRO launches record 20 satellites in a mission


The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched a record 20 satellites in a single mission from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The launch has been made by using Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-34, carrying India’s latest earth observation satellite Cartosat-2 along with 19 co-passengers satellites from US, Canada, Germany, Indonesia and two Indian academic institutions. Russia holds the world record for placing the most number of satellites in a single launch. Its Dnepr rocket launched 37 satellites in 2014.

With 20 satellites, the ISRO has beaten its previous record of placing 10 satellites into orbit in a single mission in 2008. The launch has been done after 48 hours of countdown which has begun on Monday morning. The primary satellite in this mission is the Cartosat-2 which will be used for drawing maps, urban and rural applications, coastal land use and regulation, road network monitoring and water distribution.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the space agency which has created a record of launching 20 satellites in a mission?
2. A record of launching 20 satellites in a mission has been launched by which launch vehicle?
