India puts 10 Satellites in one go

India's Polar Satellite launch Vehicle (PSLV-C9) today successfully placed ten satellites, including the country's remote sensing satellite, into orbit in a single mission. This is for the first time that ISRO has put ten satellites in orbit in a single launch and thus setting a world record.

Kudos to all the Scientists involved!
