“This will go a long way in further enhancing the confidence of the global community in the PSLV,” said an ISRO official.

  ISRO is going to make another world record next year (2017), and that is to launch world’s first space rocket with 3 rovers to the Moon. It is the first private mission by team Indus which will be succeeded by ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-Xl (PSLV-X1) right on 28th December 2017.
 According to the organizers of the global lunar competition, Google Lunar X Prize, “the Japanese Team, Hakuto, is facing the challenges with its unique dual rover system consisting of the two-wheeled ‘Tetris,’ and the four-wheeled ‘Moonraker’, which are linked by a tether”. The organizers added that while Tetris will explore holes thought to be caves in the moon, Moonraker will capture 360-degree images over there on the lunar surface.
So one by one ISRO is showing the world their tremendous capabilities and how expert they are on the space missions.

 In order to mention that around 27th January 2017, ISRO to Launch 83 Satellites At One Go, Including 80 For Foreign Countries, weighing 500 kg, in this project will belong to foreign countries – Israel, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Switzerland and the US.  ISRO is conducting high-altitude tests with its own cryogenic engine that is expected to power the heavier rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mk III (GSLV Mk III). The GSLV Mk III has the capacity to carry around four tones of load.
