ISRO successfully launches 20 satellites

Written by:

Sriharikota, June 22: ISRO successfully completes the 20-in-1 mission that has launched 20 different satellites from various countries in their respective orbits.

The launch is unique because ISRO will experiment in double ignition of liquid propellent, which is a breakthrough in the field of space science. Among the 20 satellites, 2 nano satellites have been built by engineering students, 1 satellite is ISRO's own Cartosat-2 and the rest 17 are international satellites. 

Here are the live updates:


The re-ignition of the liquid ignition in the rocket is an experiment and will be conducted after all the satellites have been launched.
