Watch a Record 104 Satellites Tumble Into Orbit

An Indian rocket delivered a record-setting 104 satellites into orbit Tuesday night.

A camera on board the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle captured the spacecraft, most of them tiny CubeSats, as they tumbled into orbit—the most placed into orbit by a single vehicle. A majority of the satellites belong to a U.S.-based company called Planet which hopes to establish a network of tiny satellites to provide near-real-time imaging of Earth.
