It’s a historic day for us Indians in UAE today. As you may already know, (because our excitement and pride reflects on our Facebook page) the Indian Space Research Organisation went down in history yesterday morning after launching 104 satellites in one go on it’s PSLV rocket, from the spaceport of Sriharikota. And, if that’s already enough to have you beaming, here’s the cherry on the cake: UAE satellite Nayif-1 was one among the 104 satellites and an integral part of this legendary moment.
Of course, ISRO’s achievement is pretty much what’s on all minds. In fact, prominent figures from the Bollywood and cricket industry tweeted in praise of the successful mission.
Check out some of the tweets:
