New Delhi: Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) scientists are busy developing next generation rockets that can carry more astronauts and put heavier satellites in orbit.
The Geostationary Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV Mk III), expected to be launched in the next three years, will give the country self-sufficiency in launching the entire range of satellites.
“If everything goes through successfully, we can attempt a launch by 2011 beginning,” GLSV Mk III project director N. Narayan Moorthy said.
