New Efforts of Launching GSLV in July

New Efforts of Launching GSLV in JulyAs stated by the chairman of ISRO, K Radhakrishnan, on Tuesday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will be making a fresh effort of launching a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) in July of the current year.

Sources said the last two attempts that were made by the center were unsuccessful.  It stated that GSLV will be carrying a communication satellite GSAT-14 in space.  It is said that GSLV is the second satellite launched by the centre after PSLV, or Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle.

PSLV is the center's 22nd successful launch in a sequence.  However, GSLV is said to be unluckier one with four out of its total 10 attempts resulting in a major failure.

The chairman said in a public lecture in the Indian National Science Academy that GSLV is an excellent vehicle.  It is lesser complex than PSLV except for one stage.  He said that the vehicle is easier to regulate despite of its larger number of controlling components.

The aircraft will be launched in the month of July and will be made to work on an indigenous cryogenic engine.  It is said of being assembled at the Sriharikota since January 31.  He said cryogenic stage of the space craft is being integrated and there is a planning of conducting another test in the up0coming days of the current month.
