India to launch 103 satellites in a single mission

India is about to launch a mission which will launch 103 satellites in a single go.

G Madhavan Nair, famous space scientist and former chairman of Indian Space Research Organization gave a hint that India could be launching so many satellite in one mission next month.

He said that after proving its talent several times, it’s not a big deal for India to achieve such a feat.

Nair also suggested to ISRO to focus on human spaceflight and further development.


Talking about the upcoming PSLV mission by ISRO, he said that in the 1500 kg capacity, as many satellites as possible can be carried.

He said that the improvements in technology has led to micro and nano satellites which do not even weigh a kilogram.

Launching 103 satellites in a single mission is no longer a big deal for India, he says.

Under Nair’s chairmanship, ISRO has done 25 successful missions.
