Description

India launches GSLV Mark-III,its largest rocket.The CREW module would be separated from the rocket about 325.52 seconds after the lift-off at 126.16 km altitude.The specially made parachutes would help the module ‘soft-crash’ in the Bay of Bengal, some few hundred km from Indira Point in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which would later be fetched by Indian Coast Guard ships. As per the plan,soon after the lift-off at Sriharikota, ISRO would study the flight validation of the complex atmospheric flight regime of LVM 3 and would also test the ability of the CREW module to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere with thermal resistance, parachute deployment in cluster formation,aero braking system and apex cover separation procedures.
