World First Satellite And List The Names Satellites Launched By ISRO

The first satellite, Sputnik 1, was placed in an orbit around Earth and was therefore in a geocentric orbit. So far this is the most common type of orbit around 2456 artificial satellites orbiting with the Earth.
India has successfully launched (71) artificial satellites from 1975 to now (30 August 2013). These satellites have been launched by various launch vehicles such as American, Russian, European and indigenous vehicles. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is involved in the design and manufacture of Indian satellites.
Chandrayaan-3 to be launched in August, ISRO to lift off 19 missions in 2022.
Chandrayaan-I, India s first Mission to Moon that was launched on October 22, 2008.
Chandrayaan-2, India s second Mission to the Moon was launched on July 22, 2019.
