India Scores In Space

“The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is a state-owned entity rare in the country for meaning business and actually delivering. Last week, the agency marked its 100th mission by successfully deploying into orbit a French Earth observation satellite and a Japanese micro-satellite, using its workhorse single-entry Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

“As ISRO’s 100th space mission, today’s launch is a milestone in our nation’s space capabilities,” said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who watched the launch live at ISRO’s space center at Sriharikota, north of Chennai.”
