It is needless to say that there was palpable enthusiasm across the country surrounding the launch. Indian Space Research Organization began the countdown for the launch of the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV)’s 39th flight on Tuesday after the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board gave its approval for lift off.

Reports suggest that PSLV first launched the 714 kg CARTOSAT-2 Series satellite for earth observation as was finely planned in advanced. It is said that it then injected 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664 kg at lift-off into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit, about 520 km from Earth.
