India’s PSLV Rocket Puts 20 Satellites In Orbit

Talk about economies of scale! SpaceVids.tv brings us the recent launch of India’s PSLV rocket, which put 20 payloads into orbit, the CartoSat 2C mapping satellite and 19 smaller ones.  Note the multinational cast of customers and the speed of the action.  Just twenty minutes after launch, the satellites are being placed hundreds of miles away from the launch point.  A reminder of the promise and power of rocket technology, and the perils if not used wisely.
