All 4 PSLV-C7 satellites launched into orbit

India on Wednesday added yet another feather to its cap in space techonology when its 10th Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle put four satellites into orbit.

The PSLV-C7 blasted off majestically into space at 9.24 am from the spaceport at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, 160 km from Chennai.

The successful launch comes six months after GSLV-FO2 broke up, deviating from its path 65 seconds after take off.

PSLV C-7 carries four satellites — the 680 kg Indian Remote Sensing Satellite CARTOSAT-2, the 550 kg Space Capsule Recovery Equipment, Indonesia’s LAPAN-TUBSAT and Argentina’s 6 kg nanosatellite, PEHUENSAT-1.
