Nagpur: City-based organization Janakrosh on Wednesday celebrated the record-breaking feat of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) by sprinkling gulal and distributing sweets. India scripted a new chapter in the history of space exploration on Wednesday with the successful launch of a record 104 satellites by ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in a single mission.
Activists of Janakrosh erupted in exhilaration the moment PSLV lifted off from Shriharikota in Andhra Pradesh and tore into orbit. The activists gathered at Variety Square and celebrated the moment by distributing sweets to each other.
Earlier, the record was in the name of Russia which had sent 37 satellites in one of their space missions.
Wednesday’s launch was another success for the Indian Space Research Organization, which is rapidly gaining a reputation globally for its effective yet low-cost missions.
