Submission + - India launches five foreign satellites (bbc.com)

An anonymous reader writes: India has put into orbit five foreign satellites, including one built by France two from Canada and one each from Singapore and Germany. The PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) has so far successfully launched 67 satellites, including 40 foreign ones, into space. The PSLV costs about Rs. 100 crore (20 Million USD) and the cost is seen as a major advantage India has over other countries in terms of commercial launches. When talking about the cost of the project, the Prime Minister of India noted that the India’s Mars mission cost less than movie Gravity.
