Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday lauded Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientists behind the successful launch of polar rocket that put a record ten satellites in orbit.

A delegation of top space scientists led by ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair presented to Singh a model of the
Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and satellite pictures of the national capital taken by Cartosat-2A which was launched on Monday last.

"Sir, we are here," a space scientist told Singh pointing out the Prime Minister's residence in the picture of the national capital taken by Cartosat-2A.

"The pictures are very clear," Singh remarked upon seeing the satellite pictures.

Cartosat-2A carries a state-of-the-art Panchromatic camera (PAN) that can record high clarity images covering a swathe of 9.6 kms. The highly agile remote sensing satellite can be manoeuvred to facilitate imaging of any area more frequently.
