ISRO's PSLV-C40 lifts off from Sriharikota
12 January 2018 Current Affairs: ISRO's PSLV-C40 carrying Cartosat-2 series satellite and 30 other spacecraft lifts off from Sriharikota.

The “Cartosat-2 Series” and 29 other satellites inserted into a 505-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit. 

Later, the payload Microsat developed by the ISRO will be taken down to a lower orbit at 359-kilometer height and launched using the ‘multiple engine switch-on’ method.

This is the fourth time the novel method has been used by the ISRO for placing satellites in multiple orbits in a single flight.
