In August past year, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle failed to put country's first privately built satellite into orbit. The rocket will then place 30 satellites including its main payload, Cartosat-2S series, seventh in the series, and 28 foreign satellites within a period of 42 minutes into polar sun synchronous orbit at an altitude of 505km. "This success in the New Year will bring benefits of the country's rapid strides in space technology to our citizens, farmers, fishermen etc", Prime Minister Modi said in a series of tweets. Last June, India launched its heaviest-ever rocket it hopes will eventually be able to carry astronauts into space, a feat only Russian Federation, the United States and China have achieved.

This will be ISRO's first launch in 2018 and also the first after the unsuccessful mission of IRNSS-1H in August previous year.

Out of the 31, three are Indian and 28 are from six countries: Canada, Finland, France, South Korea, UK and the US.

At two hours, 21 minutes and 62 seconds, this will be the longest flight of the four-stage Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). But this launch proves that all problems were addressed and rectified.

Pune (Maharashtra), Jan 12 (ANI): Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch Cartosat-2 Series satellite on PSLV rocket from Sriharikota. By the end of June, ISRO would have 250 successive deployments. The failure stranded the IRNSS 1H satellite on the PSLV's upper stage, leaving it unable to separate from the rocket to begin its mission.

# According to ISRO, the Cartosat-2 series satellite launch is a follow-on mission with the primary objective of providing high resolution scene specific spot imageries.
