India: ISRO launches a record-breaking 20 satellites in single rocket

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) used its workhorse PSLV-C34 to launch a record-breaking 20 satellites, including 17 foreign satellites, into orbit in a single mission, from Sriharikota, Wednesday.
The 320-tonne Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C34) took off on its 36th flight at 09:26 local time (03:30 GMT) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre with the 20 satellites on board.
In the final stages of the mission, ISRO also demonstrated the vehicle's capability to place satellites into different orbits. In the demonstration, the vehicle reignited twice after its fourth and final stage and moved a few kilometres further into another orbit.
