Chinese Media Applauds ISRO for launching 104 satellites

February 22, 2017 4:22 PM |


As soon as the news of ISRO successfully launching 104 satellites into space broke out, the nation became the first to do so across the globe. With this, India registered its name in the record of launching the maximum satellites on a single rocket using PSLV-C37.

These record-breaking satellites were sent into space from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. Whilst a list of many appreciations on and off the various social media platforms, India also became a hot topic of discussion for this incredible launch which was made on February 15.

By doing this, India has fared far better than some of the renowned space agencies like Russia, China, and the USA. In fact, Chinese media on Monday also states that by this historic launch, ISRO is actually giving competitions to all the other space agencies in the world.

The Director of Technology Department of the Shanghai Engineering Centre for Microsatellites, Zhang Yonghe also claims that the launch by revered ISRO can be a boon as it may help India to send the commercial satellites into space at a lesser cost.

Moreover, this launch can be a much-needed push for Beijing to prompt up the commercialization of its rocket launches. Furthermore, China also praises the way India has promoted its satellite launch internationally.
