In another feat for Indian Space Research Organisation, the Indian space agency on Wednesday launched PSLV-C47 carrying Cartosat-3 and 13 nanosatellites.
In the latest development, ISRO has injected Cartosat-3 spacecraft and 13 commercial satellites successfully into their designated orbits.
“#PSLV-C47 successfully injects #Cartosat3 spacecraft into orbit,” the space agency tweeted.
“13 commercial satellites from USA successfully placed in their designated orbits #PSLVC47,” it said in its subsequent tweet.
I heartily congratulate the entire @isro team on yet another successful launch of PSLV-C47 carrying indigenous Cartosat-3 satellite and over a dozen nano satellites of USA.
