Pushpak Launch

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is a name that does not need any introduction. It has successfully completed various projects related to space science. One of its recent achievements was launch of Chandrayan-3 on 14th July, 2023 when Vikram lunar and Pragyan lunar entered moon’s surface and were placed there. They were victorious in sending various images and audio of our satellite.

Now, in another milestone, ISRO completed Reusable Launch Vehicle Landing Experiment (RLV LEX-03) for Pushpak vehicle.

This time the organization focused on landing capabilities of a launch vehicle so that when it enters any other planet’s orbit, it can control itself automatically. Basically, this vehicle was dropped from Indian Air Force (IAF) Chinook helicopter at an altitude of 4.5 km. The speed was set to reduce from 300 km/h to 100 km/h with the help of brake parachute which it successfully did. Moreover, this was a test to check cost effectiveness of such future missions. Actually, the material used in making the vehicle are re-used parts from previous vehicles. They all worked effectively.

So, now after this testing, our Space Research Organization can plan to launch further satellites with re-used parts and the same may land safely.
