The steel authority of India limited (SAIL), a Maharatna enterprise, has added another feather to its cap by supplying steel to Indian space research organisation (ISRO) for the launch of a record 104 satellites in a single rocket on February, 15. 
 
In this scientific feat, SAIL’s Salem Steel Plant (SSP) has played an instrumental role by providing high quality stainless steel for the fuel and oxidizer tanks used in the launch vehicle of ISRO. The Salem plant has supplied steel for the iconic Chandrayan and Mangalyan missions too.
 
With this feat of ISRO, India now becomes the first country to script history after launching this record number of satellites in a single rocket. ISRO’s ‘workhorse rocket’ PSLV created the record on Wednesday by launching 104 satellites in a single mission from the state-of-the-art space centre at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.
