ISRO to launch 103 satellites in a single launch ..

With proven, time tested and reliable capability, ISRO is getting ready to launch 103 satellites, nano, micro satellites all included, in one shot by end Jan 2017, into a single orbit. This is about twice the number of 37 satellites in an earlier world record launch held by China two years back.

The fact that India is a very strategic space partner of US is evident when we get to know that of these 103, 90 satellites are for United States. As technology gets advanced, satellites get smaller, lighter and more powerful.

The crude question is  *Does not US have low cost processes and technology to launch these satellites for domestic ambitious, high tech companies ?*.

Once the domestic private tech ecosystem within India develops enough, to warrant such launches, there will be a flurry of activity then ..

Clearly India, slowly and steadily, is establishing itself as a global space power to be reckoned with. 

A great example of how a public sector organization is bringing prestige to the country !!
