ISRO set to launch monster rocket into space; all you need to know about it


Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to launch its most powerful launch vehicle, Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mark III into space. Built to lift the heaviest Indian communication satellites, GSLV Mark-III could be a game changer when it comes to India’s space efforts. ISRO will be launching the GSLV Mark III, earlier named Launch Vehicle Mark (LVM)-3, a heavy launch capability launcher, on June 5, 2017 from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

Till now, India has been using high-cost European rockets to launches satellites weighing two tonnes. The new vehicle has the ability to put satellites weighing upto four tonnes in space, and it is double the weight of what the current GSLV-Mark-II can lift. 
Important Points about GSLV-Mark-III:

1. GSLV Mark-III enables ISRO to launch from India heavier communication spacecraft to geostationary orbits of 36,000 km. 
2. GSLV Mark III will launch the GSAT-19 satellite, which is a high throughput communication satellite. It will help in India’s efforts to increase internet connectivity in the country. 
3. The GSLV is a three-stage vehicle with two solid motor strap-ons, a liquid propellant core stage (L110) and a cryogenic stage (C25). 
4. GSLV-Mk III-D1 is the first developmental flight carrying the GSAT-19 satellite.
