Countdown for the launch of ISRO’s most powerful ever rocket GSLV Mark-III-D1 has begun.
Indian Space Research Organization is all set to launch its heaviest ever rocket GSLV Mark III D1 on Monday evening from Sriharikota.
The most powerful launch vehicle ever developed by the national space agency is set to carry the communication satellite GSAT-19 into a geosynchronous transfer orbit.
This would be the first developmental flight of the heavy lift launch vehicle GSLV Mark-III D1 that can carry 4-ton class satellites into the 36000 kilometer geostationary orbits.
Once the new rocket achieves its mission objectives, it would take India forward as an advanced spacefaring nation moving towards self-sufficiency in space technology and application.
