  • Indian Space Research Organisation’s commercial launch capability reached a new high on Friday night when it successfully lunched five satellites built by UK’s Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) at Sriharikota.
  • The rocket successfully launched three identical DMC3 optical earth observation satellites, an auxiliary earth observation micro satellite (CBNT-1) and one technology demonstrator nano satellite (De-OrbitSail), built by SSTL.

What’s Special?

  • The heaviest commercial mission undertaken by the space agency underlines Isro not only as a major player for space industries globally but also as a leading foreign exchange earner for the country.
