Spaceflight offers customers the most options for getting to space, working with nearly every global launch vehicle provider, including the Falcon 9, PSLV
, Antares, Cygnus, Electron, Soyuz and others.
ISRO had launched the spacecraft on its nine-month-long odyssey on a homegrown PSLV
rocket from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on November 5, 2013.
has been a popular choice for international agencies, as ISRO's low cost of operation enables it to undertake a mission at roughly 60 percent the amount charged by other international agencies.
It was a big achievement for time- tested PSLV
on its 32nd flight.
By the beginning of next year, the youth satellite of PSLV
will be launched and it would be a platform giving connectivity to the youth of multiple countries.
Ltd, the commercial arm of India's space agency, has won a pair of deals from Algeria and Italy to launch earth observation satellites next year on the polar satellite launch vehicle, or PSLV
, its workhorse rocket.
This was the second time the PSLV
used a core-alone configuration, which meant it lifted off without its four strap-on boosters.
will also be used to launch India's first spacecraft mission to the moon, Chandrayaan-1, in 2008, according to the ISRO.
My heartiest congratulations to ISRO and its scientists on the successful launch of PSLV

The 31 satellites with a combined weight of 1,323 kg have been integrated with the PSLV
for deploying them in the earth's lower orbit after lift off.
will carry along with 30 other foreign satellites, from countries like U.
