Indian space agency sets world record, 104 satellites to be launched
India's space agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation, ISRO, will make history next week when it sends 104 satellites into space on its PSLV-C37 rocket.
Only three of them are Indian satellites, 88 of them are from the United States.
No space agency has launched such a large number of satellites in a single flight so far. The PSLV will carry a main remote-sensing satellite and two small spacecraft, and 101 small foreign commercial satellites.
The other countries launching their satellites are Israel, the UAE, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
