List of Satellites Launched By India – The first satellite by India was Aryabhata in the year 1975. Every country keeps on launching satellites for its convenience. Through which Internet, weather information and many facilities can be availed. In today’s time, normal life cannot be imagined without it.

There are very few countries that have the facility to launch satellites, out of which India is one. India’s ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) sends satellites of other countries along with it into space. Through which they earn a lot of money.
