India set a world record Wednesday, launching 104 satellites from the same rocket. This was a far cry from the previous record of 37, held by Russia in 2014.
Only three were made in India. 96 were made in the U.S. And the satellites weren't exactly big. They were classified as "nano satellites," weighing less than 22 pounds.
But experts say this points to the Indian Space Research Organization becoming a leader in the fast-growing field of space technology.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated ISRO on breaking the record.
The BBC reports "world record" trended on Twitter in India for much of Wednesday morning.
Uber India changed its car graphics to rockets to mark the occasion.
The Indian tech community celebrated the achievement.
