    "The launch vehicle will be landing first time in the ocean and the ultimate attempt is to make it land at an air-strip at Sriharikota," ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar said.

    Addressing a news conference to highlight the landmark of the first annivessary of the NDA government in the arena of space, Minister for State in Prime Minister's Office, under which the Department of Space falls, Jitendra Singh said, India will complete the launch of two satellites of Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) series next year and three satellites, in the subsequent year.

    New Delhi:
    In a technology that can bring down costs significantly of launching satellites, India will test reusable launch vehicle next month, the government today said.

    The Indian Space Research (ISRO) will also launch Astrosat, India's first dedicated satellite for astronomy by September this year.

    "This is in its initial stages. There are multiple experiments which need to be completed. The first launch is in July and this will help improve cost effectiveness. It will reduce the cost by one-tenth."
    The Minister said over the past one year, the space department has launched 11 satellites.

    "The satellite (of Astrosat) was delayed because one of the payloads had a component and there was an issue with respect to that. Now the satellite is fully integrated and the environmental test is fully in progress and it will be launched in September this year," Mr Kumar said.

    Mr Kumar, who is also the Space secretary, said that the country's lunar mission will take three more years for the satellite to launch.

    Speaking about the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), Mr Kumar said of the images it has received from the mission, it is in process of making the validating and analysing the discoveries it has made before making it public.

    "We have a working arrangement with NASA. We are also in discussion with CNES (French space agency). Recently we had a discussion with the UAE. It wants to have a Mars Mission for 2020. So they are interested in making use of the expertise available here," he said.

    I am looking forward to this for long time

    Three different attempts at this
    1. ISRO: Reusable launch vehicle
    2. DRDO: HSTDV
    3. Brahmos Corporation: Brahmos hypersonic.

    great future ahead of us.

    Who's talking about induction, more like pointing to why the f announce you are testing something and then just forget about it.

    Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has postponed the test launch of the key reusable launch vehicle technology demonstrator (RLVTD) to next year. While the earlier test schedule of September was disrupted by the launch of Astrosat, India's first astronomy satellite other launches with societal application have delayed it further. A source said the focus currently is on putting the payload for GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) system which will be put in space by GSAT in November first week and the subsequent Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) launch in December. "Both these missions have direct societal applications, which Isro feels is important," the source said, reiterating that preparations for the RLVTD test were all ready. The reusable launch vehicle will reduce launching cost to one- tenth of what's incurred now. Another source pointed out that even the eventual test of the RLVTD will be of a vehicle that's one fifth the original prototype and may not even require the PSLV. "A single-phase rocket will suffice," he said. Isro has already successfully completed testing the crew module, which is important for the human space programme.

    Reusable launch vehicle test put off
