An Indian PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) rocket put 104 satellites into orbit yesterday. (See previous posting.) These include 88 smallsats for the earth observation company Planet, 8 smallsats for Spire, which is doing maritime tracking and weather measurements, and 1 for SpacePharma, which has a miniature laboratory on its satellite for carrying out microgravity experiments.

This video shows the launch and then provides some amazing views of the satellites being deployed into orbit:
