This Launch of 20 Satellites at Once Is All the Space Porn You Need TodayRia Misra6/22/16 4:40pmFiled to: spacescienceisrorocketrocket launchlaunchesindia11414EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink All images: ISRO India just sent twenty satellites into space at once, the most the country has ever launched in a single go. The record is certainly impressive. The photo documentation of the satellites blasting off to the skies is simply incredible.AdvertisementThe satellites launched successfully this morning aboard India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. In addition to the photos below, ISRO also provided a full list of every satellite on board. The rundown seems pretty unremarkable, at first. Almost every satellite is either destined for earth-imaging or earth-monitoring. Things get a little more interesting, though, when you look at where those satellites are coming from.Fifteen of the twenty satellite spaces were sold to American or Canadian companies. Indonesian and German space organizations also each booked single tickets for their satellites. In fact, since India first began accepting satellites from abroad in 1999, 74 of the 113 launched came from other countries.India has been building up its space presence aggressively over the last few years. Recently it successfully launched both a Mars orbiter and a mini space shuttle.
