#PSLV can even launch 400 nano satellites: G Madhavan Nair

Noted space scientist G Madhavan Nair on Wednesday said Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) feat of launching 104 satellites in one go was achieved by proven technology, and the rocket has the capability to launch even 400 nano spacecrafts.

If you make 3 or 4 kg satellite, it (the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle or PSLV) can take 300 to 400 satellites at a time," the former ISRO Chairman told PTI.
