MUMBAI: It’s another feather in ISRO’s cap. The Indian space outfit seems to be going from success to success. Earlier this morning at 9:12 am, its latest mission the PSLV-C35 lifted off immaculately from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. Around 17 minutes later, its fourth stage rocket engine was shut off and it launched one of its passengers, the ScatSat 1 satellite, into its orbit at height of 720 km., to the delight of ISRO scientists.

Currently, the organization is waiting to fire the fourth stage engine again to send the remainder of its seven satellite payload into their orbit at a height of 670 km, between 11:25 and 11:28 am, according to ISRO updates.

"This is a challenging two-in-one mission which puts India in a unique league of nations having the capability to achieve two different orbits in a single mission," ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar was quoted as saying.

Tweeted Prime minister Narendra Modi: “Moment of immense joy and pride for India. Congratulations to isro on successful launch of PSLV-C35/ScatSat1 & 7 co-passenger satellites. Our space scientists keep scripting history. Their innovative zeal has touched the lives of 125 crore Indians & made India proud worldwide.”
