Mangalyaan, 2014: India joined an exclusive global club when it successfully launched the Mars Orbiter Mission on a shoestring budget that was at least 10 times lower than a similar project by the US. Thirty of the satellites were launched in an orbit 550 km about, and one 359-km above the Earth. The satellites have been placed into a 505 km polar sun-synchronous orbit. For the next 20 years, it launched various satellites for historic missions such as the Chandrayaan and Mangalyaan.
In its first mission this year, ISRO is launching its 100th satellite. The Cartosat-2 has been created to stay in its orbit for five years. "With a capability to carry up to 3 kg of payload and a total satellite mass of 11 kg, it offers huge opportunities for future use", the ISRO said.
Reacting to the news, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted that, "the success in the New Year will bring benefits of the country's rapid strides in space technology to citizens, farmers and fishermen".

Modi's government has been promoting a domestic space programme as a demonstration of low-priced technology and last February launched 104 satellites in a single mission, majority for foreign customers.
Kirk was three behind along with Zach Johnson (67), John Peterson (64), Tom Hoge (65) and PGA Tour rookie Talor Gooch . It's the longest of his career per PGA Tour media , besting a 52-footer he made at the Valspar Championship in 2016.
