th26-Dennis-ISR_GI_3024572ePushing forward the scope of its workhorse rocket PSLV, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday launched a total of eight satellites in two different orbits.

Besides the weather satellite SCATSAT-1, two satellites PRATAM and PISAT from Indian academic institutions, three from Algeria (ALSAT1N, 1B and 2B) and one each from Canada (NLS-19) and the United States (Pathfinder-1) were launched in the longest PSLV mission.

Earlier, ISRO was using separate rockets to launch satellites in different orbits and for the first time on Monday ISRO launched satellites in two different orbits in a single mission. It took two hours and 15 minutes for PSLV C-35 rocket to place all the eight satellites in two different orbits.

About 17 minutes after it took off from the First Launch Pad of the Satish Dhawan Space Centre here at 9.12 a.m., the rocket placed SCATSAT-1 (371 kg) in the polar sun synchronous orbit at an altitude of 725 km.
