Isro attempts world record

India will go to Venus for the first time and also re-visit Mars very soon. Buried and hidden in hundreds of pages of the new format electronic budget documents is the first formal acknowledgement by the government about these two new bold inter-planetary sojourns to Earth’s immediate neighbours.

104 satellites

This news comes ahead of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) attempting to undertake its mega launch where it will drop off as many as 104 satellites into space in a single mission, the first for any country.

The previous world record is held by Russia which in 2014 rocketed 37 satellites in a single launch using a modified inter-continental ballistic missile.

Isro will launch Cartosat-2 series satellite on Wednesday at Sriharikota space port near Chennai.
