PSLV-C9Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) created a world record yesterday when it successfully placed into orbit 10 satellites in one go by its PSLV-C9 rocket. The 230 tonne rocket launched in perfect conditions from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota carried 824 kg of satellites. The satellites included two Indian and foreign satellites. The first satellite to be placed into the orbit was 690kg Indian remote sensing satellite, Cartosat-2A.

“The launch was highly successful and not even the slightest deviation from the program”, said ISRO chairman Mr G Madhavan Nair.

The feat comes ahead of ISRO’s first moon mission Chandrayaan-I which is expected later this year.

Prior to this,Russia has placed 8 satellites in orbit. The launch will put India as a reliable player in the commercial space launch programs.

    ^^ You talking about Chandrayaan -I?
    AFAIK, Chandrayaan-I does not make any landing on moon surface. It will take images from about 60 miles above the surface.
