ISRO successfully launches its heaviest ever rocket
What could be considered as the game changing for rocket science in India, ISRO has successfully launched a communication satellite GSAT-19 using its heaviest rocket GSLV Mark-III.
GSLV Mk III is a three-stage heavy lift launch vehicle developed by ISRO. The vehicle has two solid strap-ons, a core liquid booster and a cryogenic upper stage.
GSLV Mk III is designed to carry 4 ton class of satellites into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) or about 10 tons to Low Earth Orbit (LEO), which is about twice the capability of GSLV Mk II.
