A selfie footage released by space agency Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) shows the PSLV-C-37 rocket launch where 104 nano-satellites were launched into space in three phases with a gap of 30 minutes. ISRO made history on Wednesday by launching 104 record satellites in a single mission. The stunning video shows the nano-satellites being released into space one by one, recorded by a special camera installed on the PSLV rocket. Many tweeted the video and shared it on Facebook too. ISRO inked a world record by launching 104 satellites, including India’’s earth observation satellite on-board PSLV-C37/Cartosat2 Series from the spaceport of Sriharikota on Wednesday. The stunning images show the satellites being launched one by one into space with a beautiful background of earth. The satellites are seen coming out of the orbiter and disappearing into the void – they are then placed in orbit to carry out the functions/experiments they were designed to do.
